Thanks for the art and music

As Thanksgiving Day dawns, kitchens will fill with sweet smelling foods, families and friends will gather for diner and conversation. Let's give thanks for the art and artists amongst us.

Last Thursday was another Third Thursday celebration by the Franklin Downtown Partnership. Emma's Quilt Cupboard took the lead this time. It was time to showcase the talents of some men with sewing skills.

Leon Leon Guerrero did this forest theme quilt.

Look closely at the dark border and you'll see the white thread stitched to pick up the canoe paddle pattern.

Dana Ryan did this quilt to tell the story of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Over at Jane's Frames, another kind of art, amongst the works framed and to be framed, Kai Olsson played guitar and sang

Sitting amongst the backsides of some art, he played frontman very well!

There won't be a Third Thursday in December but there will be a Holiday Stroll. Thursday, December 3rd from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM. From Dean College throughout the downtown area, there will be plenty to do for all members of the family.
