11th Annual “FROLIC ON FRANKLIN: A Celebration of the Arts” to be held this Saturday, September 24th
Clarksville, TN – Historic Downtown Clarksville is gearing up for the 11th Annual “FROLIC ON FRANKLIN: A Celebration of the Arts” on Saturday, September 24th, from 8:30am to 3:30pm. This free event will showcase the works of more than 30 artists, staged entertainment and art demonstrations — all along the 100 block of historic Franklin Street.
A variety of original fine art, as well as handmade crafts, will be on display including paintings and photography, jewelry, clay garden items, woodwork, purses and scarves, pottery, candles, jewelry, woven and knitted items, and seasonal gifts. Items will be for sale with prices ranging from $2.00 to $500.00.“Our local arts scene has long been one of the reasons many people locate, relocate and/or stay in Clarksville,” said artist coordinator Ryan Bowie. “We are excited to celebrate eleven years of bringing notice to local artists and artisans with Frolic on Franklin. Vendors are coming from all over the region to demonstrate, show and sell their wares during this daylong festival, with a variety of items for all ages and tastes.”
A crowd favorite is seeing, and often participating in, artists’ demonstrations. Several booths will offer the opportunity to learn techniques directly from the artists throughout the day, including painting demonstrations, woodturning on a lathe, beaded jewelry making, portrait drawings, scroll saw cutting and more.
