Testimonials for Pauls Museum Art

From press and venues and schools

U.S. Art

“Rarely does talent combine with such sensitivity and determination quite as dramatically as it has done in the life of Paul Murray. His technique is so sure – and his response to his subjects, so empathetic – you’d expect an artist would be an elder man, born in the ways old.”

U.S. Art

“Indeed, Murray’s star is ascending so quickly that soon, one might expect him to be living in style and jetting back and forth between galleries from coast to coast. Paul Murray says, ‘I want to be doing exactly what I’m doing now. What is in your heart is on your canvas – it’s as simple as that.'”

Appalachian Life Magazine

“He paints portraits of rural people. But anyone who has the opportunity to stand in front of one of his pictures knows immediately that his art is something more than portraiture. It makes many onlookers cry, I moves some to speechlessness”
