Meeting Room Gallery
Featured Artist: Linda Allen Framed studio and plein air paintings by talented Franklin artist Linda Allen will be in the gallery hall during April. Her display "Forsythia for my Friends" will include spring flowers and local landscapes done in oil, acrylic, and watercolor. Linda has been painting as a hobby for many years and considers her style to be realistic impressionism. She also has a great sense of humor; look closely to find her "signature" that is hidden somewhere in each painting.
Local artists in all media are invited to exhibit their work in the Meeting Room Gallery. These exhibits change monthly. For information about exhibiting works, artists should call (615)595-1250.
Grid Row Exhibit
Artwork by: Tracy Yarbrough Yarbrough creates art that is colorful and expressive, hoping to share some happiness with the viewer. Using acrylics and sometimes collage, she layers texture, color and line intuitively to create her paintings. She often paints over old paintings to create something entirely new. The layers of collage, texture and paint underneath her paintings are similar to ourselves - there are many layers and some secrets are hidden.
View her art in the New Book Rotunda on the first floor of the Main Library.
