Beacon Man’s work to be featured in popular magazine
It’s pretty cool when someone you know can brag about having published something in a popular national magazine. And he’s a resident of the Hudson Valley. You may have heard of RonzWorld Guitars and Gallery at Beacon. It’s a great store on Main Street, and it’s full of rock and roll artwork, most of it done by Ron, the owner of RonzWorld.
During a recent visit to RonzWorld, I learned that Ron’s work was going to be featured in a popular musician’s magazine. Here is how it happened. Ron is friends and works closely with Toni Cesiro, another Hudson Valley resident well known for her rock and roll creations. Toni makes great jewelry for guitar strings. Well, Toni works with Corky Laing, who is a rock star. Corky was the drummer for the rock band Mountain, and now he’s the main force behind Corky Laing’s Mountain.
Toni introduced Corky to Ron and RonzWorld Guitars and Gallery. Once Corky saw how amazing Ron is, he had him paint drums. Corky was so amazed by the work Ron did on his drums that Corky arranged to have a layout in Modern Drummer Magazine, one of the most respected musician magazines. Needless to say, Ron was honored to do so. And that’s how he published his art in a famous magazine. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
If you haven’t been to RonzWorld, check them out at 172 Main Street in Beacon. It’s a very cool place, and much more than a regular guitar store. Introduce yourself to Ron, then you can say you know someone whose art has been featured in a popular magazine.
