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.  Subscribe to our RSS Feed to keep up with news and events or follow us on Facebook!
