A Brush with Life! Experience the Mastery of Painter Paul Murray

CONNOISSEURS OF ART will not want to miss ”A Brush with Life,” an exhibition of internationally celebrated artist Paul Murray’s collection of oversized originals of wide-eyed children’s faces at Caesars Windsor from November 23 to 26, & Dec 1-10.
Murray has been a full-time self-taught professional artist since the age thirteen, establishing his “Portraits of the Smok­ies gallery” in Gatlinburg, TN in late 1990’s, has opened many doors not only in the United States but abroad. Paul Murray’s work has been awarded and rec­ognized Internationally and showcased at more than 100 galleries, with features around the world in museums, TV documentaries, and magazine articles as far away as Paris, France.
Paul Murray’s works are a testament to his talent, dedication and passion, a passion that radiates in every captivating creation. In this new collection he uses his mastery of negative space and intense emotion, he’s minimalized the detail but with each bold and vibrant line, you can’t help but be drawn deep into the souls of the subjects. Murray can spend months on one canvas, yet on stage he spends only minutes paint­ing the Fab Four while blindfolded, while the world’s best musicians accompanying him.” These veterans have been hand-picked by Sta­cy Heydon a long-time friend and neighbour from St Clair Beach (Tecumseh). They have worked with the likes of Shania Twain, Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton, Gordon Lightfoot, etc. Heydon, Windsor-born, is a lead guitarist/ singer-songwriter/producer, who’s known for

his extensive touring with David Bowies band and his work with many bands producing top billboard hits. Murray says, “I feel blessed that Stacy has connected me with fabulous talent, helping us tremendously with our Music ‘n’ Arts Collide tours over the years.” The last concert in Windsor, Murray sold out a 1,200-seat theatre.
Next November the concert tour finds its way to Caesars Windsor Augustus Ballroom, with an all-new version of his pro­duction “The Beatles and Beyond,” It’s at events like this that Murray can give back, that’s helped raise more than $2 million for various charitable causes since 1985. Murray says, “it is the chance to give back and the challenge to try to be successful making a difference in others’ futures that excites me.”

”A Brush with Live” exhibition at Caesars Windsor features mod­ern-day masterpieces new giant original renderings of wide-eyed innocents. Don’t miss the chance to experience the awe-inspiring artistry of Paul Murray.

Paul Murray

“The wonderful thing about these shows is that it’s not about the talent Wendell, Sarah & myself, it’s about trying to represent the greatest band ever and supporting a terrific charity like Make-A-Wish.”  Murray says.  Murray’s speed painting shows have helped represent Canada, he has performed this show for the World Cup Championships opening ceremonies and tours in Ontario and in the USA, usually to raise money for charities.  A self-imposed hermit who spends most of his time in seclusion creating refined paintings of the last stand of the pioneer lifestyle, (that take months to complete) is now on center stage hamming it up?  He’s gone from months to minutes and he’s just as satisfied with his results and the benefits of doing this for the better of others.

Fans Comments:  J. P. a production manager at Caesars, “I’ve seen hundreds of shows and Paul’s is as good as any”.

A veteran of the theatre and entertainment industry, Lois Comartin says “ I’d go see it again and again.”

People find they have never seen anything like it before and keep wanting to see it again and again. This seems a great compliment in times like today.
