Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We visited this past weekend. We spent a while talking to Kati about the Ouellette's and our hometown. We cant describe how much we enjoyed it. The best part of our trip. We purchased 2 prints and couldn't wait to hang them in our home. My husband who isn't into art was throughly impressed my Pauls work. I knew I loved it before going. Cant wait to go again and expand our small collection.

“Unresistable Art at Paul Murray Gallery”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

My husband & I were both taken with Paul Murray's art while visiting his gallery on vacation. The look in Aunt Emily's eyes & on Joseph's face really caught our attention, and then hearing the background stories of the two made us feel as if they were family. We wanted to take them home! We loved Paul's other pieces, as well. His work shows his love for the content, and how talented he is in expressing it. Kati Jane, Paul's wife, is the perfect compliment to his work. It is obvious that she feels his work, also. She was so very helpful in helping us narrow down a selection. We definitely are looking forward to seeing Paul's future work. It is truly amazing & a must see!

“Paul Murray Gallery- Like no other”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

We have been visiting this Gallery for many years now and each time we do we are filled with more love and appreciation of times past! We always come to visit 3-4 times a year and our walls at home prove it. We have several of Paul's exquisite works of art!! When you look into the eyes of the person in the art you melt into the story and feel you are hearing a story and feel the sadness, or joy and want to know more. Every piece we have we know the story behind it and we are so touched by each piece. We need more walls,LOL.
Please do not miss this Gallery. It is in a old home from the 1800's and well worth your time. Both Paul and Katie Jane ( Jo) have stories to tell and take great care in making you feel comfortable!!

Visiting Paul Murray's Gallery was one of the the highlights of our most amazing trip to Tennessee and the smokey mountains. Paul & Kati-Jane are amazing people with a true talent expressing their love and respect for these people through the art. We love Joey, Aunt Emily and Daniel and they hang proudly in our home. We look forward to another visit soon.
