Bugs, Robots, And Dinosau...

The Franklin Arts Center Resident Artists Gallery presents our June exhibition titled, "Bugs, Robots, And Dinosaurs - A Three Generations Group Exhibition". An exhibition that focuses on the imagination and creativity of all ages, from young children to adults. In this exhibition we are seeking  2D artwork of all mediums, that incorporates imagery of bugs, robots, and/or dinosaurs. We hope to see how each of these objects are depicted between three generations, children, teens, and adults. Artwork for this exhibition will be displayed on the wall in three rows around the room for each age level, with the youngest on the bottom and the adults on the top. This group exhibition will be on display in our back gallery throughout the month of June. All artists that submit artwork, that fits the theme and guidelines, will be included in this exhibition.
