Harry Ally is from Bridgewater, New Jersey. He has an MFA degree in painting from the University of North Texas and a BFA from Texas Christian University. He has been a professor of drawing and painting at Valdosta State University in Georgia for more than 20 years. Harry Paul Ally has exhibited extensively in individual, group, and juried exhibitions since the 1970s and has won numerous awards for his paintings across the nation. He utilizes a wide variety of materials – dry pigments, acrylics, tar, fabrics, oils, bonding agents, and different clays dug from the Georgia soil – “From these materials, the figurative images are unearthed,” Ally stated. “There is a markedly primitive feel to Harry Paul Ally’s work. Even with his raw figures, each canvas seems like a real moment in nature,” comments gallery owner, Bill Lowe.
