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.

Award winning art that touches the soul, an experience that wont be easily forgotten. Wood crafts, Mtn landscape photos, wildlife art, heritage homestead. Porch sitting and storytelling.

When you pull up there is a garden out front and an easel set up for Kati-Jane to draw.The view from the road makes you think of a place of comfort from the chairs on the porch to the garden Paul has planted.

Stopped in on a rainy day, stayed for a while, really appreciated being able to see works in progress, nothing I have ever experienced before. Very much enjoyed the stories behind the paintings. Well worth your time.

The Art of Paul Murray is one of several very nice art centers on Glade Road. We recommend at least a one-half visit.

We own several Paul Murray prints and especially admire his portraits of old mountain folks -- such character in their faces.

This was a highlight of my trip. An incredible realist artist that truly captures the beautiful hearts and souls of the mountain people. His "Lil Darlin" and "Kentucky Coal" are my personal favorites of beautiful little girls born and raised in the most remote parts of the mountains. He's definitely going places with what he can do!

Through the artist eyes, you can feel the heart and soul of the people. His drawings and paintings allows you to learn the history of these proud and independent people. The artist wife, Katie, also gives you a history of the artist and explains how passionate he is to realistically captures his subjects. I strongly suggest that you make time... More

Perhaps it was a rainy day that made a stop at Murray Gallery seem the thing to do. We were amazed at the quality of Paul Murray's art on display. His Appalachian Mountain people seemed to live on his canvas. His wife gave us a wonderful tour full of history anecdotes and stories. An early 19th century Appalachian home, complete... More

Paul Murray is an exceptional artist in his gift to capture the beauty of mountain people. Original works are pricy but reprints are affordable.

Hidden in the Arts and Crafts District in Gatliburg, is an older, unique house/gallery of an artist who should have his works displayed in every major gallery in the world. His use of negative-space, and his ability to capture the most haunting of eyes, surpasses many of the exalted Art Masters. His work is a must see.
