Artist Bio

“Born in Canada, Sharon has been an American citizen for some forty years. One of her favorite subjects is the beautiful landscape of British Columbia. But beauty is everywhere, and so New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Cape Cod, and even Ireland are treasured locations. Now, since her retirement 4 years ago, Sharon had the wonderful opportunity of taking art lessons, mostly in oils, from Perkins Art Centre in Moorestown, Fleisher Art in Philadelphia, Gwynne DiPilla in Haddonfield, and now Ann May Kelly in Haddon Township. She feels she’s learned something special from each of them.”


Seasonal Exhibit: Hugh Campbell

(1905 - 1997)
Exhibit is ongoing and can be viewed upstairs of the Warden's House Gallery.

  • Self-taught impressionistic landscape artist
  • His paintings and drawings chronicle the history of Mount Holly during the mid-20th century.
  • Prolific painter. Burlington County owns over 400 of his paintings. Many others are privately owned.
  • Author of the book entitled, “Knock Vigorously To Be Heard”
  • Lived most of his life in a shack on Kate’s Tract in Mount Holly
  • There are many long-time Mount Holly residents who remember Hugh Campbell walking through the streets of town with his art supplies in-tow, so he would always be ready when he felt inspired to paint.
  • Meditation and yoga played an integral role in Hugh Campbell’s daily lifestyle.

History of the Warden's House

  • Originally the warden’s living quarters were within the prison walls, but by the late 1800s the prison population had grown to a point where it was necessary to provide separate housing for the warden and his family.
  • The warden’s house was completed in 1888.
  • The warden had immediate access to the prison via a walkway (or bridge) between the two buildings on the second floor. The walkway can be seen during a Prison Museum tour.
  • Restoration of the Warden’s House was completed in 2011 and is now the permanent home of the Hugh Campbell Collection.
