This Friday marks the last showing in the Franklin Art Scene for the John Cannon Fine Arts Gallery, but celebrates the one year birthday of the experience. This free tour of more than 30 locations happens the first Friday of every month.
A small group of business owners launched this art crawl last year in conjunction with the Downtown Franklin Association to promote local talent and community relations. Blown glass, turned wood, original art and music have been a part of this monthly ritual. More than 1,000 people attended in August. Many galleries provide light food and wine to help enhance the experience. The trolleys circulate through all the stops and your $5 ticket allows unlimited starts and stops from 6-9 P.M. Locations are throughout the historic downtown area and out as far as the Factory. Now there is even a smart phone application to give you up-to-date information on the crawl and its activities. Download it from Google Play.
