“Full Circle,” an art exhibit in Campbell Library
Artist: Maureen St. John
The Rowan University Libraries inaugural exhibition for our new gallery space on the second floor of Campbell Library features the semi-abstract watercolor paintings of Maureen St. John, a retired art teacher and an alumni of Glassboro State College. Maureen invested a lifetime exploring what it means to live a creative life. She is an award-winning artist and has widely exhibited her paintings and photographs, inspired by her life and extensive travels. Her professional experiences include fine art, design, teaching, and grief counseling. Stop by and explore Maureen’s beautiful collection while reflecting on the library's role in promoting creativity.
The Campbell Library Art Gallery is located on the second floor of Campbell Library and features the creative works of faculty and staff hobbyists and a variety of artifacts from the campus collection. We also have one alumni exhibit in the fall semester. Our goal is to celebrate the creativity of our campus community. If you are a faculty or staff hobbyist and are interested in sharing your creative work with the Rowan community, please contact us at DSC@rowan.edu to explore exhibiting your creative work.
