FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC, Offers Exhibit Focused on Animals

The FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC, is presenting Animals: Forces of Nature, on view through Sept. 10, 2013.

The guiding idea behind the show is to celebrate and honor the animals in our homes and in nature and to bestow on them the dignity, respect, appreciation and love they deserve. This show was juried by FRANK artists Nerys Levy and Sudie Rakusin and will feature works by local and regional guest artists, as well as FRANK member and consigning artists. Animals will focus on all creatures, with work from artists in a variety of media and styles.

FRANK ‘s events and Thursday evening salons during the exhibition will focus on dogs – their roles in our lives, adoption, training and indispensability as service animals. Thursday, August 1st, Jen Merritt of K9 Kindness, and famed local author and photographer John Rosenthal join together at FRANK on a common theme of respecting and honoring our canine companions. K9 Kindness is a public awareness project dedicated to humane education and promoting reward based (pain free) alternatives to dog training techniques and collars designed to hurt, startle, and punish. Merritt and her dog will be presenting these techniques. John Rosenthal will follow her program with a reading of his essay Sharing History, With Rufus. In addition to his being a photographer, Rosenthal was a regular commentator on the national NPR program “All Things Considered” as well as local NPR programs, and has published numerous essays in art publications.

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. FRANK is a 501(c)3 nonprofit art gallery
