A very fine artist.

Had a chance to chat with Mr. Murray and he was very friendly and intense. No doubt, his art is haunting. This is truly fine art.

I have several pieces from this artist and have met him and his wife at art fairs around the country. He does absolutely beautiful and realistic work.

Paul Murray is an exceptional artist. His paintings of children are inspiring. He has paintings of the real people of the area that are truly works of art. One of our favorite artists.

Plan on visiting his gallery on glades road for several hours, Although the number of pieces to be viewed are small, they emotionally grip the viewer. This is art for mature individuals who have grown beyond modern fashion.

Paul Murray's Gallery is the most unique art gallery I have ever been to and a definite must-see stop! My husband and I found his art many years ago and all I can say is that he is one of the most talented artist's working today! Every piece tells a story and sometimes 'hauntingly' so... He is beyond amazing and... More

First off just let me say that he is a very talented artist. His paintings are original and obviously inspired. That having been said, his work is just flat out creepy! Every time I have gone in this place I get the "Willies". And it is not just me, my wife and son say the same thing. My son won't... More

If you enjoy the country side of things; I suggest a visit to his old time studio while you are in Gatlinburg. I am certain you will enjoy it as we have. It becomes an addiction that... More

Paul Murray is an amazing artist! As soon as you walk in you know that he's a different kind artist who catches ,captures the personality and attitude and facial expressions in his paintings of people! I have several and I know that you need to stop there when you're in the Gatlinburg area! In one word to describe it amazing
