"Artist Skondovitch Exhibits Paintings"

For two weeks Fairbanksans will be able to view the art works of Alfred Skondovitch.

Skondovitch hung his seven oils and dozen watercolors yesterday at First Federal for display.

The artist is presently employed as manager of the Technical Supply Company in Fairbanks.

Skondovitch was born in England but has been in Alaska since 1958. He married a Fairbanks girl, Patricia Mae Howard in 1963. The Skondovitches have a 3-year old son.

Prior to his move to Fairbanks Skondovitch was "the youngest participant in the 1955 New York exhibition of 'Ten Americans,' which led by Willem de Kooning, ended the dominance of the French and European schools in the United States and saw thereafter the rise of an authentic American school of international importance, influence and prestige." Other painters represented in this show were Resnick and DeNiro.

He studied at the Toynbee Hall Settlement House in London, and Hans Hofmann’s Summer School in Provincetown, Mass.
