Biography  
Gary Ray


Biography from the Archives of askART


These Notes represent the beginning of a possible future biography for this artist. Please click here if you wish to help in its development.

Gary Ray was born in Venice and is a 4th generation Californian. Primarily self taught, some of his greatest artistic influences have come from the works of Edgar Payne, and Hanson Puthuff.

Ray paints plein-air images of the Southern and Central California coastal regions and inland areas. Being a working, traveling drummer since the age of 18, he has had the opportunity to tour the great cities, and museums of Europe. This exposure has had an influence on his artistic outlook.

Ray is also heavily involved in Arts and Crafts collecting, and restoration of various Arts and Crafts items. Ray has exhibited widely in Southern and Central California.
