Woodbury Artist's 'Views of South Jersey' Showing at CCC July 10 to 31

 

Camden County College’s Marlin Gallery is presenting digital works and sculpture by local artist Thomas Puzzutelli in the one-man show “Views of South Jersey” from July 10 through 31.

Puzzutelli creates digitally on canvas or paper, and his “compositions in a square” employ graphic arts techniques to load an arrangement of photo frames within a given space. His “sculpture assemblage pieces” represent some of his newest work and repeat his interest in the rural landscape of farm structures, light, metal and technology that are depicted in his photographic renderings.

“All of this work – the single photograph, the photo compositions and the sculpture assemblage pieces – have one important thing in common: they are about the experience and identity of a place,” Puzzuttelli says. “With this show, I am bringing an experience of rural South Jersey to the viewer.”

The South Jersey native and Woodbury resident holds a bachelor of arts degree from Rutgers University and also has studied architecture and computer graphics at Mercer County Community College and film and photography at New York University. He has been both an assistant to leading fashion and advertising photographers and a commercial photographer for clients such as Abrams, Dell and Bantam publishers and Nine West shoes and handbags. Locations where he previously has exhibited include the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts in Delaware; the Philadelphia Art Museum, Widener University and Silicon Gallery in Pennsylvania; the Noyes Art Museum and Rutgers University in New Jersey; Westchester Gallery in New York; and the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art in California.

Admission to “Views of South Jersey: Digital Works and Sculpture by Thomas Puzzutelli” is free. The exhibition is open to the public, and an opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. July 10.

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. Free, off-road parking is adjacent to the venue.

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 artgallery@camdencc.edu.
