"Hearts of Gratitude"

"Hearts of Gratitude" Exhibition & Reception
Friday, February 3, 2012 at Artspace 6:00pm-10:00pm

On Friday, February 3, 2012, during the First Friday art walk at Artspace, McRay Studios in Studio 205, will unveil a collection of nearly one hundred 6” x 6” collage paintings on canvas from the collection entitled, “Hearts of Gratitude”.  The pieces will be available for purchase at $75 each, or 2 for $100.

In 2011, McRay painted an impressive one-hundred heart paintings made available for public viewing and purchase.  Again McRay has returned to this series with a renewed passion.  “The paintings touch on an emotion that we all understand “love”, says artist, Eric McRay.  “Parents, spouses, children, friends--love comes in many forms at different points in our lives.”  The collection showcases the variety of emotions love and passion can be expressed with mixed media, collage and acrylic paint.

It is rare for an audience to view a large collection and be given the opportunity to bring home a piece of it.  The paintings are placed at an accessible price-point for novice and expert collectors.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, these pieces are expected to go quickly.  Don’t miss the opportunity to see the collection in its entirety during the February First Friday art walk.
