May 12, 2010 - PRLog -- AUSTIN–May 12, 2010. Jean-Marc Fray French Antiques, a leading source of fine 17th - mid 20th century European antiques and fine art in Austin, Texas, today announced that its best-selling contemporary artists, Meredith Pardue, has officially moved to Austin and set up her studio in a loft in downtown Austin.

Jean-Marc Fray, Pardue’s exclusive representative in Austin, is hosting an art opening in his gallery at Whit Hanks (1009 W. 6th St.) on Thursday June 3, 2010 – opening reception with the artist from 6:00-8:00pm. The show, entitled “Decade”, is a celebration of Pardue’s return to Austin after being away for ten years. “It is really an expression of the excitement I feel about being back in Austin, being part of a vibrant art community, and what lies ahead,” says Pardue. Appropriately, the show will feature ten new pieces, running through June 30, 2010.

Meredith Pardue was recently selected to appear in the 2010 Southern Edition of New American Paintings, America's acclaimed “Juried Exhibition-In-Print”. Thousands of artists compete each year to appear in the annual catalogue, but only 40 artists are chosen by a jury of internationally renowned curators.

“Having Meredith here in Austin is really exciting”, says Jean-Marc Fray. “She has a huge following here already and she is a joy to work with. Now our clients will have an opportunity to see much more of her work throughout the year.”
