For several years The Barron Life Drawing Group has been using the impressive Barron Arts Center as a source of inspiration in their classic representation of the human form. The group, co-directed by artists Ray Skibinksi and Joan Katen, will display more than 50 examples of the beauty that is the human body in several medium including pastel, charcoal, pencil and ink.
Skibinski and Katen know that contemporary artists enjoy few opportunities to work with live models; therefore, they formed the drawing group which meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm to 10:00pm for eight-week sessions twice a year. The next series will start in September 2011 and is held in The Barron Art Center. For more information or to register, please call Ray Skibinksi at (732) 549-7920.
The Barron Arts Center is located at 582 Rahway Avenue in Woodbridge, NJ. Gallery hours are Monday thru Friday 11am - 4 pm; Saturday and Sunday 2:00pm - 4:00pm.
The exhibition is sponsored by The Woodbridge Township Cultural Arts Commission chaired by Dr. Dolores Capraro Gioffre with support from Mayor John E. McCormac.
