Reception and unveiling planned for Friday at Creative Framing on Depot Street
It is no secret that Macon County is filled with gorgeous scenery in every valley or hamlet and from the top of each hill. It’s no wonder that Macon County has a large number of artists drawing and painting their impressions of this beauty.
This year, the Folk Heritage Association of Macon County (FHAMC) has asked local artist John Sill to paint an original piece of art for its Franklin Folk Festival, held annually on the third Saturday of July (July 21). Carolina Wrens: Bucket Brigade is the name of the completed work, which is being auctioned to raise funds for the festival. Museum quality prints are also being presented to this year’s $100 and $200 festival sponsors at a reception given in John Sill’s honor. The reception will be held at Creative Framing, 482 Depot Street in Franklin, on Friday, June 8, from 4 to 7 p.m.
