From the Mailbag: Art at Franklin Conservatory

Hey everybody,

Just wanted to pass along an event I recommend tomorrow (Saturday, the 11th of Oct.) -- a "Meet the Artist" hour with Dorothy Gill Barnes.

Dorothy's a local octogenarian who makes amazing objects out of trees and other natural materials, blown-glass, and optical-lenses.

It's part of the "Bending Nature" show at the Franklin Conservatory (E. Broad, just west of Nelson) that runs through the rest of the year -- artists from around the world working with nature.

Dorothy meets people at NOON, tomorrow.

I've not yet seen the show, but have seen some of her work, and it's incredible.

I'm sure her presentation will be entertaining to all.

Admission cost is $7.50 for adults/$6 for student/seniors... but, that gets you admission to the whole show, indoors & out.

And it looks like the weather's going to be great.

Hope to see you all soon!
