Howard Murry Rediscovered

When: Feb. 12-March 25 2017

This exhibition features the work of Charlotte native Howard Murry, who lived and painted in the resort town of Valle Crucis in the Watauga Valley near Boone, and whose work has not been shown in twenty-five years. Murry was interested in the ways and means of living in rural North Carolina, from traditional farming methods to religious practices, and his watercolor landscapes depict a slightly idealized past, free of utility lines and automobiles, taking subtle modernist liberties with his subjects. The exhibition consists of forty watercolors from a collection that the artist's grandson has owned since Murry's death in 1968. After this reception, it runs through March 25 at Lee Hansley Gallery's new location at 1053 East Whitaker Mill Road in Raleigh. —David Klein
