Featuring: Bruce Garrity
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.
