Savannah artist José Ray finds deep inspiration in nature, depicting a world of perpetual spring where pastel-hued blossoms explode across the surface of each multi-layered composition.
Grand Bohemian Gallery, located in The Mansion on Forsyth Park at 700 Drayton St., will host “Organic Ephemera,” a new mixed-media art exhibit featuring original work by local artist Ray. This nature-inspired exhibit will open on Thursday with an artist reception from 5 to 8 p.m. and will be on display through Saturday, Oct. 30. The exhibit and the opening reception are free and open to the public.
Defined by elements of abstract expressionism and richly layered collage work, “Organic Ephemera” is a mixed-media exhibit incorporating a wide range of media, including watercolor, markers, colored pencils and ink to showcase the inherent beauty within the cycles of nature. Vibrant flowers serve as the heart and soul of the exhibit and serve as a recurring symbol for a larger message about life’s brevity and sanctity.
