'Works by Deborah Moss-Marris and Jane Chesson' Now Showing at CCC


Camden County College’s Marlin Gallery is presenting the two-dimensional creations of a pair of longtime friends in “Works by Deborah Moss-Marris and Jane Chesson” now through Feb. 21.

Moss-Marris and Chesson became friends when they were both teachers at Westfield Friends School in Cinnaminson, where Moss-Marris is now the art coordinator. Moss-Marris also is an adjunct instructor at Camden County College. Chesson is curator of education at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts in Wilmington, Del., and also has taught art at the H. Fletcher Brown Boys and Girls Club in Wilmington, Del.

For their own art, Moss-Marris and Chesson often use nature as the basis. Moss-Marris says that her work explores how atmospheric conditions affect the landscape and illuminate the process of growth and entropy, examining the small, often unnoticed parts of the world in a constant state of transformation. Chesson says that she works with symbolic relationships of forms, light and color as she makes statements about the ambiguous, the revered and the sacred.

Admission to “Works by Deborah Moss-Marris and Jane Chesson” is free. The exhibition is open to the public.

The Marlin Gallery is located inside Lincoln Hall on the College’s Blackwood Campus. The campus is located at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.

Hours are 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, with additional viewing hours available by contacting gallery director Therese Marlin at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4201, or
