Help bring in the holiday season with FRANK! Once again, FRANK will be collaborating with the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the N.C. Cancer Hospital to collect new and very gently used art supplies for the Expressive Arts Program. The program gives UNC cancer patients and caregivers the opportunity to express themselves through art.
On December 4th FRANK will host a holiday party and kickoff event, there will be a bin for art supply donations. Items may be dropped off prior to the event and throughout the month of December. Please contact Torey Mishoe, gallery manager, at 919-636-4135 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or for more information about the event.
During your visit please check out the exhibit: Penland Area Glass Art. This show will take place from November 11-January 14, with an opening reception on November 14th, and will showcase the glassworks of Penland artists.
