BLACKWOOD – Camden County College’s Marlin Gallery will present the 2015 Faculty and Staff Art Exhibition in November and December. The exhibit will showcase full-time and adjunct faculty members’ recent art pieces.
The annual exhibition has taken place for more than 15 years and always is considered an enormous success.
Visual arts of all forms are welcome at this exhibit. Art pieces could range from paintings, drawings and sculpture to photography and much more.
The full list of faculty participating has not been submitted, but works by Kay Klotzbach, Gregory Brellochs and Fred Herr will definitely be seen at the exhibit. These three faculty members have participated in recent years and always receive great responses.
“The Faculty and Staff Art Exhibition is conducted every year in November. It is the gallery’s second largest event, after the Student Exhibit, which takes place in the spring. We always have a good turnout,” said Kassandra Huerta, art gallery director.
This isn’t a show just for faculty members. People from many walks of life get excited for this event every year. Huerta says she has noticed a diverse crowd of art lovers visits the exhibition.
“We have a good foundation from faculty members coming to see the show. Friends and family of the artist appear at the event as well. However, there is also always a lot of student faces that come to the event. Faculty members in the show always let their students know if they will be showcasing anything in the exhibit, and many students come out and show their support,” Huerta said.
The exhibition will open on Nov. 18 with an artists reception, which will provide a chance to meet the artists and the people who put the show together. The exhibition will be at the gallery until Dec. 18, so there will be many opportunities to view the art at one’s leisure.
The artists reception for the 2015 Faculty and Staff Art Exhibition will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 18 at The Marlin Gallery in Room L-24 of Lincoln Hall on the Camden County College Blackwood campus. Admission will be free and light refreshments will be served. The exhibition will remain in the gallery until Dec. 18. Gallery hours are 1 to 3 p.m. Monday to Thursday with additional hours upon request.
