Macky exhibited widely and with success in America and Europe, including at the 1910 Salon des Artistes, the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exhibition and the Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco. He continued with the San Francisco Museum of Art Inaugural, the Bohemian Club and annually with the San Francisco Art Association. His work is represented in the collections of Mills College, Stanford Art Gallery, the Bohemian Club, the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Seattle Museum. He died in San Francisco in 1958.
Ian Gilmour writes: "I'm involved with a family history at the moment and there's a Macky connection that might be of interest to you. In February 1923 my grandmother Margaret Hamilton Murray (Peg) Stewart travelled to the USA with her parents. Peg's father, John William (Jack) Stewart died within days of their arrival in San Diego and was cremated and his ashes buried there. While Peg and her mother, Jessie Margaret Stewart were waiting in San Francisco to catch a ship back to New Zealand, Peg's portrait was painted by a family friend, Eric Spencer Macky. He didn't have time to put the background in but the painting is none the worse off without it and it shows Peg off to great advantage. The painting is about 64cm by 50 cm and now with me in Sydney."
