April 21, 2018 - Artist, Historian Cathleen Engelsen. Engelsen is an Ocean County native well known throughout the state for her historical paintings in watercolor, acrylic, and oil. Her sources for local scenes come from her treasury of rare, old photographs by her grandfather W.C. Jones of Tuckerton. Her father owned Sid Pearce's Boatyard and Marine Railway on Tuckerton Creek and she spent many days there. Her family also owned 'Skeeters' a cottage on Tucker's Island. Engelsen will give a power point presentation of W.C. Jones photos and her paintings that starts on the creek, goes across the bay for a day on Tucker's Island and returns for scenes of early 1900s Tuckerton. Engelsen is the vice-regent of the Great John Mathis chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and recently won a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Ocean County Cultural and Heritage Commission. The artist will also have a selection of her prints, originals and reprints of W.C. Jones photos available for purchase.
