WARWICK-For the first time in its history, the New Jersey Water Color Society will hold an exhibit outside New Jersey when the gallery at Port of Call in Warwick will host an exhibit of elected members work during October. Starting with 12 members in 1938, the society now has more than 100 full members. Becoming a full member of the society is an achievement in itself since applicants are elected by the society’s Board of Directors according to a rigorous selection process. “We have featured the work of Joan Ross since we opened five years ago,” said Port of Call gallery owner Tony Blomfield. “Joan is currently president of the NJWCS and has been instrumental in enabling us to put on this very special exhibit. This will be a must see.” The exhibit opens Oct. 7 and runs through Oct. 30. An artist’s reception will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 6 to 8 p.m. The gallery is open daily; for information call 845-986 9500 or visit www.portofcall.net.
