Thomas Wilczewski





















Thomas Wilczewski’s dedication to watercolor painting started nearly thirty years ago. Entirely self-taught, his subjects range from still life to landscapes and seascapes. His inspiration comes from various sources—it might be a nearby beach or garden or a view of a far away place.


His painting have been mass produced for greeting cards, brochures, and calendars. One watercolor, entitled "Saturday Wash," was published in the 2002 calendar printed by the Christopher Reeve Foundation. Very Special Arts, an affiliate of the John F. Kennedy Foundation, and the New Jersey Polio Network have published note cards and Christmas cards featuring his work. His rendering of lilies was entered in a nationwide competition held by Easter Seals and chosen in their 2003 spring campaign.


Tom holds elected memberships in both the New York and New Jersey American Artists' Professional League and is an exhibiting member of the Guild of Creative Arts in Shrewsbury, New Jersey. He holds associate memberships in three organizations: the New Jersey Watercolor Society, the Garden State Watercolor Society, and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America.


He is past President of the Monmouth Arts Gallery, which is now known as the Art Society of Monmouth County, and serves as the Editor of the Art Society Newsletter. Tom is a former Board Member of the Polio Network of New Jersey and sponsors the Thomas C. Wilczewski Vocational Award given annually to a handicapped student of the A. Harry Moore School in Jersey City.


In addition to his artistic pursuits, Tom has also written a poetry book entitled Poetry in Watercolor and also Tom Wilczewski's Watercolor Workbook, which focuses specifically on teaching this gratifying subject.
