Jim Gray, an American artist, has a keen understanding of his subject matter, whether it be landscapes, seascapes, wildlife or floral works. He does not paint in a mechanical style, but more as the human eye sees. After the war, Gray landed a job with an advertising firm and worked his way to art director. Outside of work, he painted every chance he had , primarily right on location, plein-air. Living in Mobile Bay, many of his paintings were from the shipyards. After a family vacation, Gray settled in Gattlinburg, TN, the entrance to the Smokey Mountains. There he mesmerized the public and opened up 3 Gallleries. He also enjoyed sculpture and was honored to create a life-size sculpture of Dolly Parton country western singer and later, President Andrew Johnson.
Artist represented at The Grand Legacy Art Gallery, Kahler Hotel, Rochester, MN
