The Barron Arts Center once again host Body Scapes, a collective of professional life model drawing by members of The Barron Life Drawing group.

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 media, 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 7:30 to 10:00 PM 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 exhibition is sponsored by The Woodbridge Township Cultural Arts Commission chaired by Dr. Dolores Capraro Gioffre with support from Mayor John E. McCormac.
