Malcolm Bray Paintings At Galerie Stockton
“HEBRIDES 8”: Artist Malcolm Bray presents a new series of paintings on paper opening August 10 at Galerie Stockton in the Stockton Market. The works are from his “Hebrides” series, inspired by the coastline of Scotland.
Opening August 10, Malcolm Bray presents a new series of paintings on paper at Galerie Stockton in the Stockton Market at 19 Bridge Street. Bray, who was born in England and now lives in the Stockton area, will present a group of large works from his “Hebrides” series, inspired by the coastline of Scotland. Bray writes, “Tucked away on the North West side of Scotland this fractured coastline is littered with islands, some drifting away from history. Celticness is everywhere, superimposed beyond memory…”
Galerie Stockton is run by Gary Snyder, a New York City gallerist who has opened a small gallery in the Stockton Market that focuses on works on paper. This will be the second exhibition at Galerie Stockton — the first exhibition focused on works from the 1920s through the 1950s by Josef Meierhans.
Malcolm Bray was born 1958 in Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire, England. From an early age, Bray received close attention from a number of his teachers who recognized his natural drawing ability in the art classroom, and introduced him to the great art of the past.
Bray studied at Hull College of Art in England, and immigrated to the United States in 1984. Shortly thereafter he began exhibiting in the New Hope area, winning numerous local awards. He has exhibited in New York City at Cheryl Hazan Gallery and Spanierman Modern. His work was recently included in an exhibition, “The Bigger Picture,” at Ellarslie Mansion, Cadwalader Park, in Trenton.
