This gallery exclusively features works done by American painter Ray Ellis. In 2004, the Telfair Museum in Savannah dedicated an exhibition in his name, which later helped in awarding him the Salmagundi Club’s Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts. Savannah has proven to be an avid fan of Ray Ellis’s work, so this gallery is a popular visit for admirers and visitors. Ray was known for painting exquisite depictions of the Southeast, and this is the perfect place to purchase a painting that captures the true essence of the low country.
