Ray Gross’ ceramic pieces are well-known in Palm Beach County galleries and exhibit venues. At the Palm Beach County Convention Center during Art Palm Beach 2015, Ray’s work will be seen in three spaces! His newest up-scaled, giant sized porcelain “tubes” will be featured at Booth #602 and at Whitespace Collection’s Booth. (During SCOPE, Miami, the Brunelli Gallery sold out!) Ray’s “Louie, Louie” porcelain handbag sculpture is part of the juried show of Art Synergy in Booth # 718. Hyper-realistic, his porcelain sculptures are often mistaken for the “real thing”. The Rickie Report urges you to visit Ray during Art Palm Beach January, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 and grab one for yourself!

Ray Gross is creating new “Pop Art Tubes” as we go to press! Using images made famous by Robert Indiana and Andy Warhol, Ray’s newest “Art Tubes” will be unveiled at Art Palm Beach next week!
Keeping the same theme of hyper-realistic porcelain sculptures of objects of everyday Americana, Ray had his first sellout show this July in the Hamptons. He is being represented by Anthony Brunelli Gallery in Binghamton, NY. and at SCOPE Miami, 2014, his work was a sell-out. Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts will represent Ray at Art Palm Springs, CA, which opens Feb 12th.
At the Art Synergy Booth ( #718) in Art Palm Beach, art patrons can see Ray’s entry to this prestigious juried exhibit. “Louie, Louie” portrays the famous hand bag in porcelain sculpture. The exhibit was juried by Paul Fisher and Rolando Chang Barrero.
Ray Gross is an artist, sculptor and designer. He was raised in South Florida in a creative home-setting, with his father who worked as a jeweler, painter and poet. His mother’s family is famous for their millinery business, designing ladies’ hats, especially in the Roaring 20’s styles.
After college and during his graduate studies at University of Florida, Ray worked as a graduate teaching assistant. He established his first studio/gallery near the famous “Homestead Hotel” near Warm Springs, VA. Two years later, Ray partnered with Joan Farish to open “Clay Concepts” in West Palm Beach,FL. and later founded Lake Avenue Gallery located in Lake Worth, FL. Ray left the gallery in the late 1980’s to focus on his studio work.
Through The Buyers Market of American Crafts Council (PA) and Rosen Media (Baltimore, MD), Ray was invited to the American Craft Museum in New York City for a one-man SOLO Exhibition. His hyper-realistic, life-size porcelain sculpture, “Harley” was an instant success and was exhibited throughout Museums on the East coast of the United States. Many will remember seeing “Harley” at the Norton Museum, Boca Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art and at Art in Public Places at Palm Beach International Airport.
