JULY 2017
THE Heard Gallery
2217 Postoffice | 903.357.9073
Open Tues.-Sat. 11am-5pm, Sun. 2pm-5pm
This featured painting by gallery owner
and artist Ray Heard, entitled
The Cottage
, measures an impressive four-
foot-square and incorporates thick brush
strokes and even thicker pallet knife
applications. This artistic combination is
meant to encourage a multi-dimensional
experience, giving viewers a sense of
walking right into the painting. This
work is the second of a new series by
Heard entitled
Galveston Yards and
, and he is currently accepting
photo submissions of similar scenes to
add to this collection. With this offer to
participate in this series of paintings,
Heard hopes to present to the public a
side of Galveston’s beauty that is not
often seen.
