The Franklin County Arts Guild is pleased to announce the opening of a show of original art by Joy Snead at the Artisan Depot from April 5 through May 13. "Angels and Animals" is inspired by the artist's wonder and awe at the gifts from God that we experience every day. Joy uses her art to show how whimsical and often comical animals can give us love and companionship, while enlightening us to the fact that angels walk among us every day.
Joy Snead is a self-taught artist and native of Franklin County. She taught at Good Shepherd Catholic School for over 20 years. When the school closed, she found herself wondering what was next. That is when The Knowledge Nook came into the picture. The Nook, as she likes to call it, is Joy's working art studio. She also provides tutoring, homework help, and, of course, art classes.
Says Joy, "My own art is whimsical, and easygoing. I like to paint with acrylics and watercolors, and I do pencil and ink drawings. I love drawing animals, getting inspiration from the two animals that live at The Nook: Betty, a beautiful veiled chameleon and her sidekick, Wilma, an obnoxious cat."
The public is invited to a reception of "Angels and Animals" on Friday, April 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm and refreshments will be served.
The Artisan Depot is the gallery of the Franklin County Arts Guild and is located at 204 Cumberland Street East in Cowan, Tennessee. It is open each week from noon to 5:00 pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturdays.
