    WARWICK, N.Y.nFor the first time in its history, the New Jersey Water Color Society (NJWCS) will hold an exhibit outside New Jersey. The Gallery at Port of Call in Warwick will host an exhibit of elected members work during the month of October. Formed in 1938, the NJWCS exists to further the appreciation and knowledge of watercolor and of watercolors by New Jersey artists. Starting with 12 members in 1938, the society has grown to a membership well in excess of 100 full members. Becoming a full member of the NJWCS is an achievement in itself since applicants are elected by the Society’s Board of Directors according to a rigorous selection process. Some of New Jersey’s finest watercolorists will be displaying their work, all of which is for sale. Says Tony Blomfield, Port of Call gallery owner, “We have featured the work of Joan Ross since we opened five years ago. 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 from 6-8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8. The gallery is open daily. For information call 845-986-9500 or visit portofcall.net
