Ray Hendershot is highly regarded for his detailed rural landscapes and antique still life paintings. However, the real subjects of his work are not the aging farm buildings, the rustic old mills or the antique crocks and jugs—the real subject is the surface itself. His images and written insights have been published in a number of books and magazines both in the United States and in England.

Hendershot has had numerous solo gallery shows and is represented by several galleries in Southeastern Pennsylvania. He is a decorated member of The American Watercolor Society, The National Watercolor Society, The Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, The Philadelphia Water Color Society, and The International Society of Acrylic Painters.

Currently, he and his wife maintain a studio in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania.
