Whiskey Trail views on display

WASHINGTON, D.C. – “Views from the American Whiskey Trail,” a collection of paintings by Scottish artist Ian Gray showcasing the culture and heritage of America’s distilled spirits, opened today at the National Press Club.

Gray’s collection of paintings captures scenes from America’s most celebrated and significant whiskey distilleries, many of which are National Historic Landmarks. The images focus on the distilling process and unique character of each distillery including Maker’s Mark, Jim Beam, Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey and Jack Daniel’s.

“While touring the distilleries of Kentucky and Tennessee, I was captivated by the beauty and the legacy of the distilled spirits culture and heritage in America,” said Gray, whose paintings will be on display through Friday, April 7.

Views from the American Whiskey Trail will mark Gray’s first exhibit in the U.S. His work has been featured in galleries in London, Germany, Canada and Scotland. His unique style of art has been recognized worldwide for his mix media technique of photography of paints. Gray’s clients include German Parliament, the Singapore Government, Citibank, Scotch Malt Whisky Society, and Glenmorangie among others.

You are aware, of course, that there are no pictures on that site, only ads for the distillies?
