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.
