The exhibition is an outgrowth of a project, coordinated by artists Ray Skibinski and Joan Katen, to make available life models to area artists so that they might have the opportunity to improve their artistic skills. The weekly gatherings, held every Tuesday Evening from September through June at the Barron Arts Center, ending with an artists’ soiree where work is critiqued and ideas exchanged and work is chosen for the exhibit. Drawing from life sometimes stands alone but other times serves as a step between initial observation and finished paintings; the drawings generate ideas and imagery for subsequent work, some of which is evident in this show.
The exhibition is sponsored by The Woodbridge Township Cultural Arts Commission chaired by Dr. Dolores Capraro Gioffre with support from The Woodbridge Township Arts Council and Mayor John E. McCormac.
