Step back into tyme, an 1800's Tenn. Mountain farm comes alive with paintings and sketches of real mtn folk. Self taught artist Paul Murray has dedicated his life to preserving the last flicker of the past.

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

Paul Murray captures the souls of those he paints and those he visits. He is a wonderful artist and a very gracious person. 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

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!
