Ray Quigley Illustrations 1/48-12/70       Additional Art by Ray Quigley (Jim's Collection)     Waterbury Studio Gallery

Ray Quigley's Waterbury, Connecticut Studio

Jim was gracious enough to share some photos of Ray at his studio.  Ray was closing up shop and would soon make his residence in a retirement community. Notice the many examples of Ray's work.

This is an excerpt from Jim's e-mail:

Hi Mike, 

  Ray was also a member of the Society of Creative Arts in Newtown, Ct. as I was. If I recall correctly meetings were held once a month at the Newtown High School Library.. I met Ray back in 1984 at one of those meetings.. I  believe Ray was living in Wilton or Westport at that time and was having a hard time driving/seeing at night. Many artists came from the lower Fairfield County Area (Fairfield, Trumbull, Westport, etc.) and after Ray had difficulty driving someone would always be sure to give him a ride as he so enjoyed seeing everyone.. 

  Several times after the meetings in Newtown we would stop at the Newtown Inn just off Route 25 in Newtown for a drink afterwards. Fun time always..lots of laughs! 

  I attended a get together in Westport back in the mid 1990's to honor Ray (I believe it was for the Famous Artist School that Ray was involved in for many years) with a great turnout! Ray could not drive at that time so Carole and I picked up Ray (in Waterbury, Ct), and drove him to Westport for his award...

   Great times every time I saw Ray... He had a quick dry humor as do I (but I am a little slower)..   

Jim
