The Franklin County Arts Alliance cordially invites the public to an opening reception for Ron Bigony, to be held at the Cultural Arts Center on Friday, June 1, 2012 at 7:00pm.  Guests can look forward to light appetizers and live dulcimer music at the reception.   The exhibit will also be open on June 8th, and June 15th, (the final day) from 10:00am-3:00pm, or by appointment by calling (903) 537-4034.  Admission is free.

Mr. Bigony has won numerous awards for his paintings, most recently, the American High Winds Medal from the American Water Color Society.  This award was for his painting, “Bank Ally”, which was part of the American Water Color Society’s 145th Annual International Exhibition.  Another of his paintings, “West End Depot” will be displayed in the Western Federation of Water Color Societies 37th Annual Exhibition in Las Vegas.

Another item of interest is that Mr. Bigony has completed for commissioned paintings for the permanent collection of the new Omni Hotel in Dallas.  These paintings are located in the West End Meeting Room and will be in background shots in four episodes of the re-make of “Dallas”, a new TV series which should begin running this summer. 

The FCAA is very fortunate to be exhibiting the work of this artist, and we hope you will join us at his reception on June 1st.
