Two Great Shows in December

Amongst a festival of lights and handcrafted Christmas ornaments and gifts, the Franklin County Arts Guild is closing the 2016 year with two great art shows. The community show, “Anything Goes” features wide variety of watercolor, acrylic, and oil pieces as well fiber pieces.  The traditional end of year Member Show features work from contributing artists at the Artisan Depot. Members have chosen works which reflect their artistic voice.  In addition there will be live music by  “Family Tradition”, a duo of musicians/artists who play a mix of folk, county, and international tunes.  WOW!  The community is cordially invited to attend the opening reception for these shows on Friday December 2 at 5pm. Come and enjoy some Christmas cheer and see these two great shows and other arts and crafts in the gallery. Both shows will run through December 24th.

Veteran’s Day Art Celebration A Success

 

he Franklin County Arts Guild honored area veterans with an open house event on November 11 featuring two arts shows at the Artisan Depot in Cowan. The Community Art Show “Patriotism” opened on October 27th with work by community members of all ages with their interpretations of what Patriotism means to them.  The second show celebrated the art produced by area veterans in various media, styles, and themes.   Veterans serving from World War II up through the present are participating in this event.  An Open House for both shows was held on Veterans Day November 11 from 1-6 pm.  All community members, especially veterans, were invited to come to the open house and join the celebration.  The local Home Depot supported the event by providing door prices especially for veterans attending; there were additional door prices of art and flowers offered hourly for all visitors.  We were honored to have over 60 visitors to the open house, many of whom were veterans.

The winner of the people’s choice award for the Patriotism themed community show was Nancy Wallace for her book about her family’s veterans.
