Paul Grant watercolor exhibit to open July 6 at Ziyad and Co. (formerly Ed Gray Gallery)

CALUMET --  Ziyad and Co., formerly the Ed Gray Gallery, is proud to feature the work of Marquette artist Paul Grant during the month of July. Grant has been a resident of Northern Michigan since 1965 and has enjoyed wide acclaim for his artistry and versatility in both watercolor and oil.

Paul Grant's show opens with an artist reception from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, July 6, at the gallery, 109 Fifth St., Calumet.

Primarily a portrait artist by conviction, Grant is equally capable in landscape and wildlife art. His watercolors and oils cover a wide variety of subjects and techniques, allowing the subject to dictate the technique. Paul studied art at the Kendall School of Design in Grand Rapids, Mich., and apprenticed with Robert Sailors, Weaving Designer. A signature member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Grant has garnered numerous prizes in regional and national shows. His versatility has allowed him to illustrate several books and magazines, including stories for Reader's Digest Condensed Books, Gray's Sporting Journal and others. Grant was a friend and fishing buddy of the late John Voelker -- sharing flies, stories and bourbon for over twenty years.
