Message from Jinnie May, President:

Our 73rd Annual Open Juried Exhibition entry process is now closed for 2015. 
The paintings have been sent to our Juror of Selection, John Salminen AWS, D.F., NWS for his daunting job of selecting the paintings for our exhibit.  From what I’ve seen he will have a very difficult time as there are many high quality paintings for
him to choose from.

This being our first year of digital entries I think everyone involved should be commended. Thank you to the entire NJWCS Board for all your involvement particularly Mike Scherfen and Allen Taylor who both played a huge role in NJWCS’s “maiden voyage”.  Judy Hummer, Medy Bozkurtian, Pat Morgan,
Mary Ann Burton and Bob Ballance were also a tremendous help (as always).
We could not have done it without you.

And to all our Members, Associate members and non – members who toiled away probably spending more frustrating time with their online entry then they did on their paintings, hats off to you for persevering.  I promise it will get easier, just like painting… the more you do it the better you get.

Both Mike and I got to talk to a lot of our established members as well as lots of new people. I’m glad you made the phone calls; happy we could help (in most cases) and look forward to meeting you in person. During this process I think we all learned a lot; at least I know I did.

To those of you who did not enter the 73rd Annual Open Exhibition in 2015 I hope you will consider entering next year. This show is open to all residents of New Jersey, 18 years of age or older. Our award money continues to grow with our many generous sponsors continually donating to our annual Exhibitions.

I’m proud to say we have secured The Mayo Center for The Performing Arts in Morristown, NJ for our 2016 Annual Elected Members’ Show. This is a lovely
gallery in a very active Center with lots of foot traffic and frequent art sales
so be sure to keep an eye out for the Prospectus next spring. The show dates
are June 28-August 9, 2016.

The next notification from NJWCS will be during the first week of September when the selected artists and their paintings will be announced. Those selected will receive delivery, reception and pick-up information. Good Luck to all who entered.
Jinnie May President NJWCS
