Calls for Art

The galleries within the Franklin Arts Center regularly have public calls for art for their upcoming shows, check this page regularly for the latest opportunities to participate in gallery shows at the Franklin Arts Center!

The New Bohemian Gallery | Number By Number


For our Number By Number exhibition, we are looking for Paint By Number pieces from all artists, both experienced and those new to this painting style. As much as we would like to see Paint By Number pieces in the traditional form, we will also be looking for those pieces that have been taken to the next level, and go outside of the box. To participate, you will first need to acquire a Paint By Number kit to work with, and then let the creative ideas flow by following the instructions or changing things up a little bit.  Visit our website for more information and the online submission form.



Franklin Arts Center Resident Artists Gallery | Photoworks: A Juried Photography Exhibition


The Franklin Arts Center Resident Artists Gallery presents: Photoworks, a Juried Photography Exhibition. We are excited to announce that Steven McKnight will be our guest juror for this exhibition. We invite photographers from all over, working in all forms of photography, to submit artwork to be juried into this exhibition. This is an open theme, so all imagery, ideas, and themes will be accepted. This group exhibition will be on display in our gallery throughout the month of August. Please visit our website for more information.
