Joe Plageman Out of the Cradle

  • Camden Fireworks 1813 Broadway Camden, NJ, 08104 United States (map)

This reception marks the opening of “Out of the Cradle,” an exhibition of nature works and Walt Whitman-inspired paintings by artist Joe Plageman. You’ll be astounded by Joe’s ten 7-foot-wide tablecloth paintings that range in mood from soothing to psychedelic, using a wide array of natural materials as well as traditional art media. We’re also showing selections from his set of paintings, called sonographs, that depict each line of Whitman’s great ode, “Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking”.

At 1 pm we will present a live reading of the poem by five local poets while projecting images of the accompanying paintings.
