It is with a feeling of genuine accomplishment that FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC, prepares to celebrate its 5th birthday as a non-profit organization that champions the arts, the general community, and, of course, downtown Chapel Hill. As an art gallery that displays the work of so many accomplished local artists, our reputation stands second to none. Of equal importance to us is our relation to many local out-reach programs—our ongoing mentorship of the Karen Youth Art Group, our creative collaboration with members of the Autism Spectrum Disorder community, and our creative liaison with many local young artists (Rubbish 2 Runway!)
Please mark your calendars: this year our annual Gala—the fundraising event so necessary to support FRANK’s contribution to the arts and to the community—will be held on Saturday, Apr. 18, 2015, beginning at 6pm. This year’s Gala, newly designed for a special audience of our supporters, will feature an exclusive collection of 55 pieces of high-quality art, all donated by local artists. Every Art Ticket-holder is guaranteed to leave FRANK Gallery not only with a work of art, but with the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve contributed to the well-being of this important Chapel Hill institution. The addition of a Patron Ticket now allows partygoers, those with less available wall space, to join us for the festivities. All ticketed guests will be included in the live auction portion and giveaways on this special evening. Because of the select nature of this event, space is limited, be sure to purchase your tickets soon.
Participating artists include: Keith Allen, Kathy Armacost, Peg Bachenheimer, Sasha Bakaric, Marty Biernbaum, Natalie Boorman, Alan Dehmer, Mark Elliott, Carmen Elliott, Judith Ernst, Peter Filene, Jane Filer Susan Filley, Peg Gignoux, Catherine Gregory, Linwood Hart, Shelly Hehenberger, Warren Hicks, Paul Hrusovsky, Gordon Jameson, Mirinda Kossoff, Mary Lamb, Carroll Lassiter, Jean LeCluyse, Nerys Levy, Michele Maynard, Bill McAllister, Rebecca Neigher, Jim Oleson, Elaine O’Neil, Linda Prager, Sudie Rakusin, Luna Lee Ray, Carol Retsch-Bogart, Noah Riedel, John Rosenthal, Carolyn Rugen, David Spear, Barbara Tyroler, Anita Wolfenden, and Aggie Zed.
