Watercolorists Unlimited Fall Art Show, Sale in Cranbury

“PARSONAGE BARN”: This painting by Donna Senopoulos of Plainsboro is part of Watercolorists Unlimited’s annual Fall Art Show and Sale, to be held on Saturday, September 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Parsonage Barn in Cranbury.

Watercolorists Unlimited will host their annual Fall Art Show and Sale on Saturday, September 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the historic Parsonage Barn at 3 Cranbury Neck Road, one block away from Main Street in Cranbury. Original paintings from 11 local watercolor artists will be available for purchase, selling at price points from $35 to $500. Both framed and unframed, many paintings feature the barns on this property and local scenery, along with florals, still life, and landscapes of various locations and seasons. A portion of the proceeds helps support the Parsonage Barn.

Watercolorists Unlimited, a group of artists from Central New Jersey, has been active for more than 25 years. The artists meet monthly to propose challenging assignments and to critique the previous month’s work. This show will have more than 100 of their paintings for sale, and artists will be on hand to answer questions about their work. Refreshments will be served.

Artists include Carla Olsen of Princeton; Andrea Rubenstein of Princeton Junction; Donna Senopoulos of Plainsboro; Bob Heyer and Jean Dunham of Monroe; Diane Pastore, Dale Smith, and Lisa Walsh of Cranbury; and Elaine Citron, Sharon Lisman, and Leila Sawyer from the greater Central Jersey area.

The Parsonage Barn, circa 1741, was moved to its current location and restored in 2010. It features original timbers and many farm tools from the period. The site includes two other historic barns. It is one of Cranbury’s most scenic spots, and a great place to spend a fall day.

Cash, checks, and some electronic payments such as Venmo are accepted, but no credit cards. The event will be held rain or shine. Parking is available on Main Street and nearby Heritage Park on South Main St. No parking is allowed on the barn site.
