New Policy & Schedule for Hanging Art in the Artisan Depot

The Artisan Depot with the approval of the Franklin County Arts Guild has established a new policy and Schedule for art work that is hung on the Art boards in the gallery. This schedule is meant to encourage member artists to exhibit new works which will likewise encourage new visitors and customers to come to the gallery and to see what’s new. This January members are asked to collect art that is currently hanging and to bring in new work for exhibit. New works will be on exhibit for six months. Then in July these works will be removed and new works will be hung. This biannual schedule goes into effect this month. Can’t wait to see your new work!
