Participation in community shows is open to the public. The Franklin County Arts Guild invites original contributions from Franklin County artists of all ages in any media for inclusion in its Community Arts Shows at the Artisan Depot. Individuals wishing to submit work for a community show should submit their work at the Artisan Depot during gallery operating hours on intake dates published on this pge. Each artist is free to interpret the theme of each show as they wish. All work must be submitted ready for display (see below). Membership in the Guild and gallery fees are not required for these shows but members can also participate. Click here for full information about Community Shows.
