In Memory of Bernice Rappoport

Bernice Rappoport

Bernice passed away in December of 2022. She was a valued member of the league whose beautiful watercolors graced our walls for years. They reflected her love of family as well as scenes of places she visited.

In my art I choose subjects that have a personal connection. Many of my paintings feature the play of light on landscapes, portraits/figures and still life.

I started painting at the age of 12 and throughout the years, studied at the Art Students League in New York and also with many notable artists. Working in oil, pastel, acrylics, charcoal or watercolor, the challenge was always there. Today I work primarily in watercolor.

My paintings have been selected into juried shows throughout New Jersey including the Ocean City Cultural Center juried exhibit in 2012, and I won first place watercolor in the 2013 Senior Show and Judges Choice at Pine Shores Art Association. I was elected to full membership in the prestigious Garden State Watercolor Society and to the New Jersey Watercolor Society. My painting was selected by the GSWCS for the Ken McCann award for a scene in the natural environment. My paintings are also in private collections.

Currently I am program director for the Suburban Artist Guild in East Brunswick. I have also taught classes in drawing and watercolor for adults

I continue in my pursuit of excellence. "I enjoy painting and hope to bring some of that joy to the viewer's life."
