The Passaic County Historical Society is pleased to announce Urban / Rural: Landscapes of Passaic by William P. Campbell, a career spanning retrospective, featuring the landscape paintings of local artist William P. Campbell (1943-1992).
A Paterson native formally trained at Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts and the School of Fine Arts at William Paterson College, Campbell spent his life painting the landscapes of Northern New Jersey, while working as a Letter Carrier for the United States Postal Service in Passaic. This exhibition of Campbell’s work focuses on the urban and rural landscapes of the County of Passaic. Many of the pieces reflect Campbell’s interest in how industry and urban development mingle with, and sometimes overwhelm, the natural beauty of the Passaic River.
The paintings will be on display in Lambert Castle from December 13, 2017 through March 25, 2018. The exhibit is located on the 3rd floor of the museum and can be viewed as a part of the self-guided museum tour.
