Clarksville, TN – Downtown Clarksville’s 8th Annual “Frolic on Franklin: A Celebration of the Arts” will take place Saturday, September 14th from 9:00am-3:30pm. The free event will showcase the works of 20 local and regional artists, staged and roaming entertainment, artists’ demonstrations, and baked goods – 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, handmade toys, wood-turned items, quilts, fabric purses and totes, pottery, wreaths, hand-painted signs, jewelry, woven and knitted items, and seasonal gifts. Items will be for sale with prices ranging from $2.00 – $250.00.
A crowd favorite is seeing, and often participating in, artists’ demonstrations. About half of the booths will offer the opportunity to learn techniques directly from the artists throughout the day.
Some of these include watercolor, wood-turning on a lathe, beaded jewelry making, plein air painting, knitting, weaving, crochet, scroll saw, and fish painting.
In addition to artist booths, a roaming magician will perform along the street and staged entertainment is scheduled throughout the day.
