Introducing Eric McRay of McRay Studios (featuring the Art of Eric McRay)
Contemporary Modernist:
From soul to brush to canvas, McRay’s art overflows with bright colors, expressive styles, and energized designs, which he employs to capture the vibrancy and intensity of his subjects. He is on the road to reinvention; constantly challenging himself, and exploring his visual language.
Excellent work, I applaud you!!!
On , we celebrate the heroes and helpers who make a difference in our community! Thank you to our partners who helped us celebrate such a special day.
