Artists of the Month: Rebecca Thomas and Michael Horne

April 12, Thursday, 5:30-7:00pm

Paramount Theatre, 3723 North Main Street

April’s Artist of the Month reception is a celebration of TWO artists!

Both have been practicing their art throughout their lives. FCAC is delighted that Rebecca Thomas and Michael Horne will be sharing the Gallery at the Paramount Theatre throughout the month of April.

Rebecca B. Thomas is a pen & ink specialist. She is known primarily for her renderings of homes, businesses, and historic sites. She is also an accomplished portrait artist

Michael Horne Jr. is also a pen and ink specialist. One of his pieces of art was auctioned with great success at a pre-inauguration party in 2008 for President-elect Obama.

Please join us for this free event as we celebrate the art of Rebecca and Michael.
