Message from Susanna Anastasia, President:

Welcome to the website of the New Jersey Water Color Society.   Our organization was formed in 1938 by a group of devoted watercolor artists and later became the foremost watercolor society in the state of New Jersey.

For 80 years the New Jersey Water Color Society has celebrated the work
of many New Jersey artists and to date we continue to showcase an outstanding variety of water media paintings.   As our organization continues to prosper and grow, we are constantly encouraging and adding new talent to our membership list. 

Utilizing a variety of public presentations this Society works diligently to present the fine work of our elected members, associate members and non-member artists who participate in our Annual Open Juried Show.

While all NJWCS exhibitions are judged, the Annual Open Showis also juried.
The selection process for this event is in the hands of two prominent AWS
non-member watercolor artists who serve as juror of selection and awards juror. Both jurors are outstanding in the medium of watercolor and honor us by their participation. Together they bring the highest standards of expertise to this process.

As we celebrate our 80th year, the NJWCS Annual Juried Exhibition will again be held at the Middletown Arts Center, 36 Church Street, Middletown, N. J. This notable show runs from September 30 through November 4, 2018.  A reception,
free to the public, is slated for the closing day, November 4, from 2 pm to 4 pm.

Susanna Anastasia, President, NJWCS
