NEW ROFFS™ Artist of the Year: Adrian E. Gray

At ROFFS™ we annually select an artist that we would like to feature as our “Artist of the Year.” The purpose of this honor is to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with relatively new and up and coming artists in the marine community. We select artists based on a variety of objective and subjective criteria. Previous recipients have been Don Ray, Steve Goione, Cary Chen, Kevin Brant, Barry Barnett, Daniel Jean-Baptiste, Mark Ray, Tony Ludovico, Judy Shillingburg, Larry Rackley, David Mellor, Dustin Cole, and Dennis Friel. This year the ROFFS™ “artist of the year 2016-2017” is Adrian E. Gray.

We feature an “Artist of the Year” this to support relatively new and exciting marine artists. We hope the samples of their art will make our website a more interesting place to visit. We hope that it will promote the artist and their art in that our web visitors will tell other people about the art and generate sales for the artist. ROFFS™ does not get a commission or any direct financial benefit from this.  We do not charge any fee for anything or ask for commission on any sales we bring to the artist. Any sales derived from our “Artist of the Year” site belong to the artist. We will not take orders, but instead refer people to the artist’s website directly. This is clearly shown.
