Welcome to the Franklin Art Association!

The Franklin Art Association was established in 1971 to provide a forum for the promotion of visual arts; for the preservation of the finest artistic traditions by means of exhibiting works, conducting classes, lectures, and sponsoring other activities favorable to artistic expression and to provide friendly exchanges among painters, photographers and those interested in the fine arts.

Regular monthly meetings are held at the Franklin Senior Center, 10 Daniel McCahill St., a large building located diagonally across from the town common and across from St. Mary’s Church (directions), from 6:30-9:00 p.m. with a business meeting starting at 6:45, the first Wednesday of each month, September through June.  Meetings are free and open to the public.

Members Art Creation at May Meeting

The Franklin Art Association will meet Wednesday, May 6th,  from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the Franklin Senior Center, 10 Daniel McCahill Street, for our last meeting until September.  Refreshments and socialization will begin at 6:30.  The May meeting will be an opportunity to create art together, rather than have a guest artist.  This fun session will offer a variety of still life arrangements for members and guests to draw, paint or photograph.  Please bring all materials needed for work in the medium of your choice.  Although still life arrangements will be set up, feel free to bring your own objects.

Meetings are free and open to the public.
