The Franklin Art Scene returns Friday, Feb 6th from 6p-9p, offering both the novice and the art connoisseur an opportunity to see a sweeping variety of magnificent work, from blown glass to turned wood to mixed media and more. The Franklin Art Scene is a monthly art crawl, involving businesses in and around downtown Franklin. Many of the stops are within walking distance, however, The Williamson Source is happy to sponsor unlimited trolley/bus rides so attendees can travel easily from place to place for free.
Friday night’s art includes:
- The work of Emerald Estock at O’More College of Design— Estock combines weaving and photography (seen above)
- Work by Ray Nolan at Merridees Breadbasket
Historic Franklin Presbyterian Church, will feature Franklin artist Timothy Ditzler and a written word exhibit by local author Mark A. Cornelius
- Savory Spice Shop Franklin will host work by David Laughlin of Laughlin Fine Arts
- Michael Hitt’s original work will be on display at Zolo’s Italian Restaurant
And many more!
In addition to the art crawl, a silent auction will take place at Town’s End General Store, at 504 West Main Street. Last month, Town’s End General Store announced the closing of its store. Cynthia Townsend, owner of the shop, will open her franchise-owned business, Jamba Juice, in its location come Spring 2015. Though Town’s End General Store is closing, it is now offering discounts on items throughout the store–including display and antique items.
The sale will continue through the first week in February, and conclude with a silent auction coinciding with Franklin Art Scene on Friday, Feb. 6. The silent auction will end on Feb. 8. The proceeds from the event will benefit the Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County and Williamson County CASA.
Silent auction items will include merchandise left after the store’s sale, items Cindy has saved for the auction, antique pieces from Cindy’s own collection, and more!
“We are glad to have the opportunity to give back to our community through local charitable involvement,” Cindy says.
