No other contemporary artist mastered the hand-crafted aesthetic of fine art while pushing the limits of graphic design more than Rex Ray (1956–2015). In the documentary feature REX RAY: How to Make a Rex Ray (2009), the artist takes viewers on a tour from his hometown in Colorado Springs to his studio in San Francisco, revealing his artistic process and everyday practice. Whether creating a painting or donating a graphic design, Rex Ray continually reinvented a language to speak in the worlds of both art and computer graphics.

Griff Williams, Owner and Founder of GALLERY 16, will be in conversation with the film’s Director Joshua V. Hassel after the screening. Program held in conjunction with our current Front Gallery exhibition, “A Picture Is a Word: The Posters of Rex Ray.”
