FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC, Features Holiday Show

FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC, will present Artful Giving, a show featuring a wide array of artwork and handsome wares from some exciting guests and our collection of talented artists, on view from Nov. 5 through Jan. 5, 2014. A reception will be held on Nov. 8, from 6-9pm during Chapel Hill’s 2nd Friday Art Walk.

Master the art of giving this holiday season with FRANK. This holiday season, FRANK will present some of the unique gifts and special items you will find at FRANK, including one-of-a-kind jewelry, dyed silk and woven scarves, handmade paper goods, ceramics, woodwork, and fine art.

We are pleased to introduce a number of guest artists who will be making their FRANK debut. Jewelers include Una Barrett, Q Evon, Nancy Fleming, Janet Harriman, and Lauren Markley, each bringing a selection of exceptional pieces in a variety of styles and prices. Among them, new work from FRANK’s talented jewelers will be on display. In addition to these guests, local crafter Becky Broun will be sharing her precious handmade boxes and books with us this season. Woodworker Jim Oleson has created a series of small housewares and boxes that will be for sale.

Chapel Hill craftswoman Trudy Thompson will be debuting her hand dyed silk scarves at FRANK. We are also excited to announce that several FRANK artists will be sharing work in other mediums for this show; fiber artist Peg Gignoux will offer handmade journals, and ceramicist Jim Lux will present his beautiful woven scarves. FRANK will also host a wonderful display the fine art created by our talented member and consigning artists.

Accompanying this delightful show, FRANK will once again be working with the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the NC Cancer Hospital to collect art supplies for the Expressive Arts Program. Our art supply collection will begin on Dec. 5, from 6-8pm, with a holiday party and kickoff event. Collections will continue through the month of December at FRANK. We are also thrilled to host local musical group Supercollider for a salon in November, and the Chatham County Artist Guild for their annual open studio tours with a reception on Dec. 12, from 6-8pm.

This show is sure to delight and impress holiday shoppers from all over, and will no doubt offer the perfect handmade gift for everyone on your list this season. We hope our collection will inspire shoppers to support your local craftsmen and women this holiday season and to “shop small” and “buy local.”

The mission of the Franklin Street Arts Collective is to support the arts community of Chapel Hill and the region, strengthen community appreciation of the arts through educational outreach, and promote Chapel Hill and North Carolina as a major arts destination.
