GSWS hosts Poetry Talk-Gallery Walk with Exhibition on Migration at D&R Greenway

September 21, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Garden State Watercolor Society (GSWS) has its 53rd Annual Open Juried Exhibition, “Migration: Movement for Survival” at D&R Greenway Land Trust, Princeton, through September 24th. GSWS artists created their art to contemplate migration and change – a growing phenomenon in today’s world. Whether figurative or abstract, realistic or fanciful, this thoughtful art will inspire and cause the viewer to think and reflect on the state of the world’s people, wildlife and climate.

This exhibition is on display as well as online at www.gswcs.org. The exhibition at D&R Greenway Land Trust’s Johnson Education Center is at One Preservation Place, Princeton NJ 08540. The public is invited to visit the art galleries, weekdays 10 am – 4 pm. Closed holidays. Visit www.drgeenway.org or call 609 924-4646 for more info.

Poetry workshops, led by renowned local poets in partnership with D&R Greenway, will result in the Poetry Talk-Gallery Walk being presented on September 21. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Poetry reading of selected works is slated to begin at 7:00. Following that is a Gallery Walk hosted by GSWS from 7:30 to 8:30pm. No preregistration is required. Light refreshments will be served.

An Artist Demo, by award-winning GSWS artist Ann Greene, will take place September 24, from 2 to 4 pm, as a culmination of the exhibition.

A unique display upon entering the Johnson Education Center lobby is GSWS’ 5th Annual Art Installation, “Going, Going, Gone…” “Fifty-three GSWS artists created 123 beautiful small works that call attention to New Jersey species identified by NJDEP as in greatest need of our conservation efforts. Artists submitted paintings of animals using a designated color scheme. GSWS is proud to partner with the D&R Greenway Land Trust to inform and inspire people into action.” said Tess Fields, President of GSWS. “This exhibit is another exciting intersection of science and art that will capture wide audience attention.”


Garden State Watercolor Society has led a community of artists and inspired generations of art enthusiasts. The society’s founding goal is to encourage painting in watermedia and provide educational and exhibition opportunities for artists and residents of NJ, PA, NY or DE. GSWS holds 3-4 exhibitions a year including our largest endeavor, the Annual Open Juried Exhibition (hybrid); an online Members Exhibition; hybrid Small but Mighty Exhibition, and a live Art Sale via pop up gallery in Princeton. A permanent exhibit of botanical-style watercolors is on display inside of the Discovery Center at the former estate of Joseph Bonaparte at Point Breeze, Bordentown, NJ.

Over its existence, GSWS has been a beacon for award-winning artists to inspire generations. The nonprofit organization’s goal is to encourage painting in water media, provide educational and exhibition opportunities for adult artists of NJ, PA, NY or DE. Please visit www.gswcs.org.
