The Frisco Association for the Arts present the touring exhibition 'Texas Goes to France' with works by Diana Moya and D.K. Richardson at the Frisco Discovery Center Art Gallery.

A delegation of Texas artists led by Diana Moya traveled to Europe this summer to exhibit their artwork, representing the USA in two of the most beautiful international exhibitions dedicated to the art of pastel. D.K. Richardson stated, ”Words don’t quite convey the awe of seeing your paintings hanging among the works of other master pastelists from Europe, invited by the oldest Pastel Society in the world founded by art legends as Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt among other talents.” 

Paris, Texas? or Paris, France? In an interesting note, both artists start by interpreting the similarities of what they know versus an icon in this exciting venture, as they document their travels through paintings, photographs, and videos. 

Visit with Diana and D.K. for demos, free to the public  November 27 and December 18 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm and let their artwork transport you to beautiful places.  Both artists will offer holiday rebates on portrait commissions and fine painting classes for children and adults. 

“Art is to be lived and shared. Every art piece you bring home needs to have a meaning to become part of an everlasting investment that will remain in your family for generations,” said Diana Moya.  “I'm very happy to share our experiences with Frisco, a great city for the Arts.”

The exhibit will be available for viewing at the new Frisco Discovery Center Art Gallery from November 18 to December 30, 2010.  After Frisco, the exhibit goes to the Dallas Downtown Gallery in April and to the Arlington Museum of Art in May 2011.  The Frisco Discovery Center, located at 8004 N. Tollway, Frisco, TX 75034, gives the public an opportunity to meet the local artists and purchase their art.  For more information please email fine.artists.society@gmail.com.
