It is with deep regret that we announce the loss of another ASAA member. Fellow artist Mark Bray flew west on Oct. 1.We lost a great artist and good friend in Mark Bray. His talents as an aviation artist and his love for the space program gave us an eternal connection. My favorite, Stand by for Columbia, depicts the moment the Spaceshuttle Columbia passed into the eternal realm beyond space and time.
Mark was our 2013 James V. Roy Award winner, taking home the award for his fantastic piece “Lunarian Man”. He also served a term on the ASAA board.
Godspeed Mark. Heaven is brighter with you amongst its stars
It is with a very heavy heart that we report the news that longtime ASAA member Roy Grinnell has passed away. Roy has been such an inspiration to so many artists throughout his career, with both his aviation art and his western art. Aside from his artistic skills, Roy was a genuinely kind and humble man who was always willing to share his knowledge with others. A huge loss to the art community. Godspeed, Roy.
