Save the Date

Mark your calendars: September 20th is the

Third Annual Frolic on Franklin:

A Celebration of the Arts.

A day of the arts in downtown Clarksville. It starts at 9 am with over 40 artists on Franklin Street between 1st and 2nd Streets. There will be all kids of artist with several demonstrations: jewelry making, oils, acrylics, pottery, photography, woodturning and stained glass to name but a few.

Then at 6 pm the focus will shift to The Roxy for their 26th Annual Gala. This is the Roxy's largest fund raiser of the year. It will begin with dinner, catered by The Bound'ry, followed by an auction of some of the finest art Clarksville has to offer. The entertainment will be the rollicking musical,

The Robber Bridegroom

--bluegrass, a planter's daughter, a rascally robber of the woods, an evil stepmother and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk!

Here are some pictures from last years event, just as it was getting started:

This is a wonderful, family event--free and open to the public. Bring the whole clan--there will be plenty to do and watch. There will be live performances in front of the Roxy throughout the day--including one act plays. There will be face painting and sidewalk art for the kids.

As for the Gala--you'll have to get your tickets now.

If you've got questions or know an artist who may be interested in participating, please contact me.

Thanks for your indulgence.

Looking forward to it! Wish I had some pots to sell this year. Oh well, one of these years I'll get my pottery making groove back on. :~)
