Ray Skibinski is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Art in New York City. He worked as a graphic designer before branching out as a free-lance illustrator. His illustrations have appeared in many prominent publications such as Time/Life, Reader’s Digest, Doubleday, Western Publishing and national magazines and newspapers.

In 1992 he started exhibiting his fine art works in galleries and statewide juried exhibitions where he has won best in show and awards of merit. He  works in a variety of mediums including oil, watercolor, acrylic and pen & ink. His art is traditional in that it corresponds to the ideals of representation and at the same time is imbued with his own accumulated experience. He brings together elements of dream, where surrealism and symbolism mix.

Ray Skibinki currently teaches watercolor painting with the Oak Tree group in Edison and monitors a figure drawing class at the Barron Arts Center in Woodbridge.

*Gallery hours are Monday thru Friday 11 AM-4 PM; Saturday and Sunday 2-4 PM.

The exhibition is sponsored by The Woodbridge Township Cultural Arts Commission chaired by Dr. Dolores Capraro Gioffre with support from Mayor John E. McCormac.
