The exhibit, “Looking In/Looking Out,” includes landscapes and portraits and runs from Monday, Aug. 30 through Thursday, Sept. 30. A reception for the artist is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 26 from noon to 2:30 p.m.
Cameron, a senior landscape architect with the NJMC, has worked as an artist and designer for more than 30 years. She said she uses digital photography and Adobe Photoshop as her primary tools, pushing colors to the brink of reality and shapes to the brink of abstraction.
“I use digital photography because it allows me to capture fleeting images and dig out their treasures later,” Cameron said. “Working with the raw images in Photoshop feels like excavating; I’m trying to uncover the essence of what is already there.”
Cameron’s work has been shown in galleries in New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York, and she is a member of the Highland Park Artists’ Collective. Her images can be viewed on her website, http://cameronartportraits.com.
The Flyway Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The gallery is located at the Meadowlands Environment Center in Lyndhurst, within DeKorte Park, the home of the NJMC.
The park encompasses one-square mile of wetlands, nature trails and water views – framed by the New York City skyline – and is a great place for bird watching and enjoying nature in general.
Directions to DeKorte Park are available in the “About Us” section of the NJMC’s website, at www.njmeadowlands.gov, or by calling (201) 460-8300.
