Near and Far by Artist Philip Gray at Art Room Galleries in Taunton

PUBLISHED: 01:21 16 October 2011 | UPDATED: 20:08 20 February 2013

The exhibition NEAR AND FAR draws together paintings from all his extreme art expeditions to date. It also includes an outstanding new series of works celebrating the peace and tranquillity of the safe harbours of home.

PHILIP GRAY will be giving a fascinating live painting demonstration, and then hosting a charity auction of the painting which he has created. Philip will personally unveil a new collection of original oils and pastels, including a stunning new series of yachting scenes. Philip's passion for art is equalled only by his passion for exploration and discovery.

His 'extreme art' is painted in unexpected and sometimes dangerous locations from Icelandic Volcanoes to the North Atlantic seabed, and even 20,000 feet up Everest.

Philip says People say that for those who have ventured through these regions, you will return a changed person... ....this was certainly true in my case when i returned home from Iceland, I was able to paint with renewed energy".

The ArtRoom Galleries in Tauntonlooks forward to hearing from you if you wish to join them on this event and master class from internationally collected artist Philip Gray.
