  • THE ARTISTSW I L L I A M R E AV E S | S A R A H F O LT Z F I N E A R T

  • Randy Bacon was born in Abilene and currently resides and works in Albany. He studied studio art at the University of Texas at Austin and earned his bachelor of fine arts degree in studio art and journalism from Southern Methodist University. Before choosing painting as his true vocation, Bacon was president of Stuart Bacon Advertising and Public Relations in Fort Worth, a full-service agency he co-founded with Jim Stuart.

    During a summer fellowship in painting at the Vermont Studio Center, Bacon had the opportunity to improve his skill and develop his personal style. His decision to return to painting full-time followed. Continuing to grow as an artist, Bacon was awarded a full scholarship at Texas Christian University, where he earned his master of fine arts degree in painting.

    Randy Bacon has always been attracted to the quality of light, the precise colors, and the big skies of his native state. In communicating a sense of place, Bacon often draws upon the people and venues of his life to bring about work where past, present, and future become blended,
