Art crawl returns to downtown Franklin Friday

Weather permitting, the Franklin Art Scene will return to downtown Franklin Friday night featuring talented artists throughout Main Street’s businesses.

The Williamson County Arts Council operates the art crawl on the first Friday of every month. It lasts from 6-9 p.m. in downtown Franklin, where many shop owners offer complimentary refreshments and live music. Attendees can ride to each stop on a free trolley.

This week, featured artists include Christine Marshall, Jeannette Giza and Karen Updegraff at the Historic Franklin Presbyterian Church.

Marshall has resided in Middle Tennessee since the mid-1960s. She began her formal art career painting watercolors and making hand-pulled prints. Marshall continues experimenting with different mediums and techniques broadening her skills in pastels, collage, acrylic and mixed media. Her art expresses her fondness for animals and nature. 

Giza’s passion for photography began as a child. It wasn’t until she retired, moved to Tennessee, and joined Brentwood Photography Group that she realized there was a difference between taking pictures and capturing images. Her favorite subjects to photograph include cats, flowers and Middle Tennessee landscapes.

Updegraff has resided in Franklin for many years. Since graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, she has studied and taught in several mediums. She will feature paintings in watercolor and acrylics and enjoys painting realistic landscapes and vibrant abstracts. 

After Friday’s Art Scene, the next one is scheduled for March 3.
