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

What a privilege it was to see Paul's work. From his portraits flow heart, feeling, and emotion. Can any artist ever hope for more than that? This is the truest form of success. Now if only I could be blessed enough to hide in a corner and watch him work. D. Kline

We purchased 2 prints and couldn't wait to hang them in our home. My husband who isn't into art was throughly impressed my Pauls work. I knew I... More

My husband & I were both taken with Paul Murray's art while visiting his gallery on vacation. The look in Aunt Emily's eyes & on Joseph's face really caught our attention, and then hearing the background stories of the two made us feel as if they were family. We wanted to take them home! We loved Paul's other pieces, as... More

My wife and I were traveling the Great Smokey Arts and Crafts trail when we came across this amazing studio. You would never know from the outside what magnificent work is inside. Paul's` art work is truly spell binding. If you like quality art, make this stop! It truly made our vacation a winner. Magnificent!

We were so happy we stopped by this gallery - almost missed it as it is a stand alone. Paul Murray's work is impressive. He captures the heart and soul of each person and you feel like you know each one personally. We had a hard time deciding which prints we wanted- only took two but will return next year... More
