'Population' painter at HMA

Expanding portrait exhibit to be shown

HUNTINGTON — An exhibit of painter Ray Turner's work, titled “Population,” will run through Nov. 10 at the Huntington Museum of Art.

Turner revitalizes the art of portraiture and invites viewers to contemplate identity from an individual and collective standpoint. “Population” is an expanding series of portraits celebrating a cross-section of people from across the country, including the Huntington area. Portraits of more than two dozen Huntingtonians are included. Primarily executed with oil paint on 12" x 12" glass, Turner’s textural paintings are fluid and his work interpretive rather than purely representational and emphasizes elements such as color, value and composition.

Turner received a bachelor of fine art degree in 1985 from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where he  taught for 13 years as a professor of painting and drawing. In 2009, “Population” was shown for the first time at the Pasadena Museum of California Art.  It began a national tour that year and has been exhibited at the Long Beach Museum of Art in California, Akron Art Museum in Ohio, Whatcom Museum and Museum of Glas both in Washington,  Alexandria Museum of Art in Louisiana and Wichita Art Museum in Kansas. Now at the Huntington Museum of Art, “Population” will continue to tour through 2019.

Turner will speak about his work during a free opening reception at 7 p.m. Oct. 18. Refreshments will be served.

He will lead a three-day workshop at HMA titled "Population: Good Man Bad Man" from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 18 through 20. For more information or to register, call (304) 529-2701
