Ethiopian 2 by John Wolff

On view from October 2 through October 30.

The Essex Water Color Club is New Jersey’s oldest watercolor organization. It was founded by twenty-seven Essex County artists in 1932 to stimulate interest in and advance the art of water media painting. Since then this non-profit organization has continuously provided a forum for artists to meet, share ideas, discuss techniques and exhibit their work. This exhibition represents the club’s final show this year of members’ watercolor paintings, ranging in subject from landscapes and portraits to abstract paintings.

Sandy's Wake-Up Call: Juried Photography Show

Opening reception: Saturday, November 8, 2:00-4:00 pm

The devastation Superstorm Sandy wreaked on the region was a wake-up call to everyone. Before the storm, we had virtually ignored imminent environmental problems. As heroic and committed as the response to Superstorm Sandy was, the problems will be with our region for a long time. By keeping the memory of Sandy alive, we can have a positive impact on the future. Much has been done to recover and restore the region since Sandy, but much, much more must be done. The Green Team and Shade Tree Committee in Bernardsville are taking one step toward this goal with the organization of this exhibition entitled “Sandy’s Wake-Up Call.” For all the details, click here.

New Jersey Photography Forum

On view from December 2 through December 30, 2014.

This is the NJ Photography Forum’s 20th annual juried photography exhibit. The Forum is a group of professional fine art photography exhibitors that was started in 1995 by Nancy J. Ori of Berkeley Heights and Michael Creem of Summit as an opportunity for photographers to gather and talk about their work and for exhibition opportunities within the fine art community. The membership comes from all areas of the state and as a group they have tremendous variety in style and use a wide array of photographic techniques.
