West Windsor Arts Council “Across the Board” Exhibit

West Windsor Arts Council presents “Across the Board: Garden State Watercolor Society,” an in-person and online exhibition of original fine art for sale, on view through August 27. The exhibit spaces are at West Windsor Arts, 952 Alexander Road, Princeton Junction, with gallery hours by appointment, and at the new Whole World Arts in the MarketFair shopping center on Route 1. The current hours of operation for this new location are Wednesday through Friday, 3-6 p.m. and Saturday 1-4 p.m.

A virtual art exhibit opening will be held on Friday, July 16, 7:15–9 p.m. via Zoom. It will prove to be an interesting evening reviewing the work of the Garden State Watercolor Society board members. This is a great time to learn the processes that the artists use while creating their art. The public is invited, but must register for the event, free, via the link on the exhibit opening web page at westwindsorarts.org.

All the artists’ styles vary greatly, but each is accomplished in her own right. The award-winning artists, who all happen to be women, include Joanne Amantea (treasurer), Linda Arnold, Clara Sue Beym, Joan Capaldo, Grace Chiarella, Tess Fields (president), Judith Hummer (vice president), Monica Kennedy, Barbara March, Jinnie May (secretary), Margaret Simpson, Chris Valente, Lynn Cheng Varga, and Lois Westerfield. Garden State Watercolor Society’s Board of Directors and distinguished chairs’ art is available for sale in this exhibit online and in person. From sales, 30 percent becomes a donation to support West Windsor Art’s nonprofit mission of providing high-quality cultural programming. The art centers bring people together and transform the world around us by inspiring, educating, and promoting the arts and art appreciation for the community.

Tess Fields, president of Garden State Watercolor Society, said “I want to thank West Windsor Art Center for this great opportunity. To my knowledge this is the first time in over 50 years of its existence that the board members of the Garden State Watercolor Society have had their own exhibit. We have developed wonderful friendships working together over the years and we are so happy to be collaborating on this special exhibit.”
