Grayson Bowen achieved his Masters of Fine Arts in 2009 with a focus on painting from Western Carolina University. Grayson began to focus primarily on art while earning his BFA at School of Visual Arts in 2005. Expressionist art has been a constant exploration and force in Gray’s life. Currently, Grayson is pursuing a Masters of Art Therapy from St. Mary of the Woods College. He hopes his passion for creating art will mesh with healing therapy to help others express and heal through art.

“My work is a reflection of me; very eclectic with little theme.
I prefer watercolor with additional gouache & ink. I also enjoy working in acrylic.
The addition of gears and mathematics in some of my work is a fascination for me. The intricate character of a subject with absolutes combined with painting, which seldom has any definitive qualities whatsoever, is a very interesting marriage. Some things in nature, however, are beautiful the way they are and require no modifications, except those that occur from our own perceptions.
I hope you enjoy my collection as much as I have enjoyed sharing it with you.”
Opening Reception: Friday, January 9th, 6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery, in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. The exhibit will be on display January 5th-31st.
