Franklin Art Scene continues anniversary celebrations through April

The Franklin Art Scene is continuing its fifth anniversary celebration on Friday, April 1, by educating participants on Williamson County art and culture with a “Trivial Pursuit: Artist Edition” quiz and prize drawing, as well as featuring a wide range of local artisans at new locations.

Coordinated by the Downtown Franklin Association, the free event will now include 28 participating sites dispersed in and around downtown — including the Second South District and Bridge Street, as well as up and down Columbia Avenue.

As part of the free event’s anniversary celebration, patrons will have the opportunity to participate in a Trivial Pursuit: Artist Edition quiz where they’ll answer questions regarding the featured artists and their work. Those who correctly answer eight questions will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win dinner for two ($100 gift card) to Puckett’s Boat House, as well as movie tickets to the Franklin Theatre.

Friday’s locations are slated to offer a sweeping variety of magnificent work, ranging from mixed-media pieces and handcrafted jewelry to turned wood and original paintings, including:

Bagbey House, at 134 Fourth Ave. N., will showcase a variety of illustrations and paintings by Chris Ousley. Ousley enjoys painting and drawing all sorts of subjects in various genres – look out for landscapes, city scenes and even pet portraits.
