This year the Franklin County Arts Guild celebrates over thirty years of higher education scholarships to deserving Franklin County students who want to pursue art or art education at the college level. As a part of that celebration, the next community art show “Art as Teacher” celebrates art as well art teachers as essential to understanding the world around us. The show features work that epitomizes how arts are used to teach history, science, and even math. One piece is by a teacher who was painting along with her students while teaching body and face proportions and light source using a live model. Interested community members, especially teachers and students of art are invited to the opening reception on Friday, May 12 at the Artisan Depot from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The show will run through June 18.
The Franklin County Arts Guild invites original contributions from Franklin County artists of all ages in any media for inclusion in its Community Arts Shows at the Artisan Depot. Individuals wishing to submit work for the next community show “Vacation” should submit their work at the Artisan Depot from June 15 through 18 during gallery operating hours. Each artist is invited to explore the theme in their own interpretation and to have fun with it.
The Artisan Depot is operated by the Franklin County Arts Guild and is located at 204 Cumberland St. East in Cowan, TN. Gallery hours are 12 pm to 5 pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays and 11 am to 5 pm on Saturdays.
