Palmetto Bluff and Four Corners Fine Art Gallery and Framing in Bluffton, SC, Feature Works by Ray Ellis Family

The Palmetto Bluff Arts Commission in Bluffton, SC, will present the Ellis Family Show, featuring works by well-known artist Ray Ellis and his daughter Peggy and son George, on view in the Conservancy Gallery at Palmetto Bluff, on view from 11am-4pm, on Oct. 12 and then move to Four Corners Fine Art Gallery and Framing in Bluffton, to be on view through Oct. 31, 2013. At Palmetto Bluff the public will have an opportunity to skype Ray Ellis and have a chance to ask a question and hear him speak about his work.

Ellis has been a local legend in this area for many years. He arrived in Hilton Head along with a number of artists and marketing folks in the 70’s. He was quick to grasp the beauty here with his paintbrush. Hilton Head was fortunate to attract such talent to paint here and assist in marketing such a beautiful coastline treasure.

Ellis’ children have followed his lead in the art world exploring for themselves what they can do with a paintbrush. Peggy Ellis has been in the Charleston, SC, area. Her work is quite complimentary to Ray’s, she sees the value in what her Dad has accomplished and is reaching for that star herself.

George Ellis grew up drawing and painting, encouraged by his father. George began painting automobiles in watercolor in 2000 and launched his print business in 2013. He currently paints in his studio in Northport, NY, near Long Island Sound.
