"Picturing Camden" Opening Reception

Saturday, September 23, 2017 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm

Location: Stedman Gallery

Rounding out the trilogy of exhibitions on Camden, NJ, Visions of Camden (2013) and Sounds of Camden (2014), Picturing Camden (2017) explores Camden's environment through the eyes of six contemporary artists. These participating artists have created new work inspired by Camden.

Tim Portlock and Shuli Sadé have created digital and mixed media works that transform the visible through technology; the painters Michael Bartmann and Bruce Garrity have used color and form to create vibrant and engaging images; the photographer Ken Hohing is revisiting a photographic project  from the 1980s documenting Camden to highlight how differently we see photography and its objects; and the designer and photographer Eric Porter inventoried striking visual  images that the textures and colors of the city of Camden offer the attentive viewer.

Finally, students from the Camden Center for Youth Development created incredible photographs during their walking tours through the city using disposable cameras.

The Opening Reception for Picturing Camden will take place on  Saturday, September 23 from 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm in the Stedman Gallery (Fine Arts Building).

Please join us for food, drink, and conversation with some of our featured artists as we celebrate the opening of this beautiful exhibition!

*NEW gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm*
