Ray Gross’ Newest Art Sculptures Premiere At Art Palm Beach

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!

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.
