Ray Hendershot has been painting for the better part of his 66 years. Ray spent as much time as possible working on his techniques and developing his style, but through participation in local art fairs and exhibitions he was able to build a reputation and a demand for his work. But it wasn’t until his retirement in 1991 that Ray Hendershot was able to put his artwork first and begin to participate in National and International exhibitions and competitions targeted toward greater exposure. He has earned signature membership status in the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, the Philadelphia Water Color Club and the National Acrylic Painters Association.
