Rex GoreleighDonnell Walker
I recentley found two of Rex Goreleigh watercolors. One is titled "seascape" done in 1942 and the other is a landscape with a red farm house done in 1967. If anyone has information about this wonderful artist I would love to learn more about him.

I am interested in who ever has
his artwork. I would like to create a list of individuals
who have Rex's work.
I knew him as a friend of my mothers. She was one of members of his support group.

My son Mark purchased 2 paintings directly from Mr Goreleigh at the Canal Studio. I am enjoying the painting listed above and Mark has the other in NYC.
Yes, Rex Gorleigh's legacy does continue. My parents and Mr. Gorleigh were friends. As a little girl I do recall him visiting and my parents listening so intently to his stories. Both of my parents have now deceased and they left to our enjoymenmt several of his works. The tobacco series, fruit bowl are among them. Even as a little girl I knew there was something special about him.

My mother also was amember of his support group in the mid to late 1980s when he lived across Harrison Street from us in Princeton,NJ.She used to chauffeur him to various activities and occasionally suprise him with his favorite vices( pipe tobbaco and wild turkey) He used to attend artist salons in our home on Sundays, and bring with him such artists as Tom Malloy,Raymond Steth, and Hughie Lee-Smith and his wife. He painted portraits of myself and my mother and sister.I was there when he painted the bridge over the canal and have a few of his other works that he left me before his unfortunate passing.What a great and gentle man, and a truly underrated artist as well.It was an honor to have known him!

I am interested in the work of Rex Gorleigh ... if anyone could share photos of his work, I would appreciate much.
Rex goreleigh is/was my grandfather's brother. I will have to verify this exact relationship with my aunt who was his favorite niece. Uncle Rex did not have a lot of fans in the family. My mother, aunt, brother, and myself were exceptions. We visited him at the Studio on the Canal. He gave me the Sunflower painting for my wedding. We purchased many others of his paintings. My aunt has the full tobacco series. My family holds onto his work with love and affection. Anita Bell

Rex was related to me by marriage. As a child, I visited Studio on the Canal. I am fortunate to have been given a few of his paintings, some of his experimental ones which are very dear to me. It is good to know his work lives on and has reached internet status. I now have an opportunity to learn about and share his legacy with others.
Rex Gorleigh and my familyMarc Hauben
When we lived in Princeton in the early 1980s, Mr. Gorleigh was a friend of the family and used to paint at my house. I was there when he painted the canal bridge watercolors (I still have one of them)and his famed "tobacco series"(I have a full series). He would come to our house in Princeton and tell us stories of his growing up, the time he spent down south, his time in Paris, and much more. He would paint portraits of my mom, my sister, and myself. Also he would bring other artists from the area to our house; such artists as Romare Bearden, Ray Steth, and Tom Malloy, to name just a few.
