CAMDEN, N.J. -- Aside from celebrating Black History Month, the Beverly Collins-Roberts solo photograhy show also opened the newly-refurbished auditorium and gallery space (above, right) at the Camden County Historical Society. Located on the second floor of the Society's Boyer Building, the auditorium's most notable feature is its soaring arched ceiling. The entrance (above, left) evokes the same 18th-century feel as the rest of the three-building complex on Park Blvd. at Euclid Avenue. See larger image.

Along with mid-floor gallery panels, Ms. Collins-Roberts' works were also hung on the wall in a space festooned with flower arrangements (above, left). Most of the flowers were displayed in historic vases and ginger jars from the Society's Victorian-era collection. A melon-shaped 19th-century Chinese vase (above, right) was made of bronze and decorated with delicate images of birds and insects. See larger image.
