Folks downtown in Louisburg, North Carolina, have probably noticed some activity going on at 111 N Main Street as Franklin County Arts Council prepares the space for the Louisburg Art Gallery.

Project managers Patrice and Craig Kassan have been hard at work to get the gallery ready for a “soft” opening on Friday, May 19, 2017, from 5pm until 9pm.

The event will include an art exhibit to coincide with the Louisburg Summer Concert Series, and a silent auction for an art piece donated Craig Kassan.

FCAC is calling for volunteers to help ready the space ready for classes and exhibits by late this summer. They are also accepting donations of paint and supplies. Anyone wishing to contribute should contact Pamela Andrejev via email.

The Arts Council currently is headquartered in Franklinton, sharing Leslie Martin’s pottery studio downtown. The UpFront Gallery, which is in the studio, has works by over twenty members of FCAC and will remain open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Find them online at fcacarts.org.
