McRay and Artspace Collector's Gala!
Support Artspace! Gala Artist Feature: “Song for Charleston” by Eric McRay. McRay’s goal is to cause his audience to “hear the music and feel the intensity.” Through his brilliant color, expressive brushstrokes, and improvisational application of acrylic paint, McRay captures the vibrancy and spontaneity of his musical subjects as a two dimensional visual art form, producing a dynamic, “visual rhythm.”
