Watercolor Society 2017

NJ Watercolor Society Associate Members Show

Through December 20, 2017

The New Jersey Water Color Society Associate Members are showing their realist and abstract paintings judged by Richard Williams Haynes. Three awards will be presented. Concurrently, a Pop Up show featuring Union artist Lucie Maragni’s sculptures and oil paintings is on display.

The New Jersey Water Color Society has focused on celebrating work of the highest quality in the state. Starting with original member, Lucille Hobbie (president 1955-6), we have included such nationally known luminaries as Henry Gasser (president ‘46-47), Kent Day Coes (1948), William Gorman (President NJWCS ‘57-59, AWS ‘86-93), Ray Ellis (president ’67-68), Arthur Barbour, Roberta Carter Clark (’79-81), Nicolas Reale, Pat San Soucie, etc. Our members have worked in many styles, realist and abstract and advanced the popularity and sweep of the medium. As we have over the years, we include many water-soluble media, watercolor, gouache, acrylic and inks under glass, not on canvas nor including a dominance of collage and no printed elements.  And like the American Watercolor Society we allow artists to use any “water color”, from whatever period, as long as they were original, not done under the assistance of an instructor.
