“Streets of Italy” by Bev Boren

The Breckenridge Fine Arts Center’s exhibit featuring the oil paintings and watercolors of Texas artist Bev Boren has been extended until the end of March, giving local residents another month to take in the collection of portraits, florals, landscapes and street scenes.

The exhibit is located in the BFAC’s Main Gallery. Boren, who lives in Trophy Club, is a signature member of the Outdoor Painters Society and the Southwestern Watercolor Society and a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, and American Watercolor Society.

According to her website, Boren’s work is primarily the result of her need to paint. She loves to paint a variety of subject matter as well as work in various mediums.  Painting is her way of connecting with the world and the people around her and sharing those experiences along the way.

“Trying to describe or explain my efforts at painting or drawing seems like a futile effort,” she says on the website. “After all, I want my work to express itself without the necessity of words.  My best hope is that my work will stand simply on it’s own, and find a connection with viewers where words fail.”

She has taught a variety of art classes and given art talks and demonstrations. She also has won numerous awards in art shows, including in Graham’s Art Splash and the BFAC’s annual juried art show.

The BFAC is located at 207 N. Breckenridge Ave. in Breckenridge. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. Hours may change during the summer months. For more information, call 254-559-6602 or send an email to info@breckenridgefineart.org.

Also on exhibit at the BFAC is Ricky Stober’s RWS Military Museum, through June 15 in the East Gallery. The mobile museum includes U.S. military uniforms, medals, letters from the warfront and more. It is being featured for two typical BFAC rotations and will be updated with some additional items in April. Stober, a 2018 graduate of Breckenridge High School, is the owner and founder of the museum. He’s been collecting military items since he was 10 years old.
