Artist Eric McRay recently set up shop for a visit at American Tobacco.

As part of CBC’s continued support of the United Arts Council, the American Tobacco Campus hosted local painter Eric McRay on October 24-27 and November 7-10, 2006.  

McRay set up a temporary studio in the old Chamber’s Trophy space located in the first floor lobby area of the Crowe building.  He brought some of his own work to display, as well as painted several pieces on site, including a recognizable landmark from American Tobacco.

You may recognize McRay ’s work as it is prominently featured in the 2nd floor hallway of the Strickland Building.  He also has a permanent studio located at Artspace in downtown Raleigh and his artwork has appeared in several local and national magazines.
