|Frank Hyder show at CCC|
Painting, sculpture, poetry and light will combine to create an Eden-like setting while raising awareness of threats posed by the actions of the industrial world in an upcoming solo exhibition by an internationally-respected artist who is a former Camden County College adjunct faculty member. “The Marlin Gallery presents Frank Hyder” will be displayed in Camden County College’s Marlin Gallery from March 9 to April 8. An artist’s reception will open the show at 5 p.m. this evening. Hyder will speak and conduct a signing event for his book “Poet of a Threatened Eden” beginning at 7 p.m.
Admission to “The Marlin Gallery Presents Frank Hyder” is free. The venue is located inside Lincoln Hall on CCC’s Blackwood Campus.
Hyder is inspired by the time he spent living in Venezuela, where he studied his surroundings and their culture, history and indigenous tribes. The show aims to express Hyder’s personal vision through a mixed-media display of two- and three-dimensional works. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Venezuela and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
