SEWELL, N.J. – South Jersey Artist Collective and Rowan College of South Jersey (RCSJ) will host Rapid Response Collection, an exploration of the coronavirus pandemic’s influence on local artists on Friday, March 25 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at their Gloucester County campus.
Visitors to the Dr. Ross Beitzel Art Gallery will have the opportunity to meet the artists of the collection and discuss their work.
Throughout history, according to the college, art has served as a reflection of the times in which it was created and the experiences of its creators. The Rapid Response Collection highlights the talent of more than 40 South Jersey artists – representing a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and artistic mediums – and invites them to share how the pandemic has led them to explore new themes, embrace different materials, or trial novel techniques.
The Dr. Ross Beitzel Art Gallery is housed in the Eugene J. McCaffrey College Center on RCSJ’s Gloucester campus, located at 1400 Tanyard Road, Sewell. Directions are available at www.RCSJ.edu/Visit/Gloucester.
