Against the Wall and Natural Lines
Armacost’s Against the Wall will feature a new body of work just for FRANK Gallery.  She is an award winning, nationally exhibited and internationally collected artist.  Armacost’s work is inspired by nature and her surroundings, and is rooted in expressing feelings that can’t be put into words. 

Natural Lines exhibition will showcase Oleson’s handcrafted, functional furniture. His woodwork is contemporary and highly influenced by some of the biggest names in the medium, including Michael Fortune and George Nakashima. Oleson describes his work as function meets natural forms, and focuses on its inherent colors and patterns of each piece of wood to create a one of a kind work.

Paintings, Photographs, Friendship
Paintings, Photographs, Friendship emphasizes the uncertain boundary that separates writers and artists.  This month long exhibition features the paintings and photography of two good friends and Triangle legends, who are each in their own way, blurring the boundary of writer and artist – famed NC author, Clyde Edgerton, and acclaimed NC photographer, John Rosenthal.

The two will also host a very special evening at FRANK on October 6th, with a presentation of stories, artwork, and music from a friendship that has crossed more than three decades – with special guest, former Red Clay Rambler, Mike Craver!

Turning the Lens on Learning
The Michael and Laura Brader-Araje Community Outreach Gallery presents Turning the Lens on Learning, an exhibition that visually captures the direct connections between play, creativity and learning.  Featuring inspirational photographs by Barbara Tyroler, the exhibit showcases the ongoing work of Kidzu Children’s Museum and encourages viewers to contemplate the ingredients and environments necessary to nurture creativity and innovative thinking for success in the 21st century.
