Alice Hirt & Jo Bearse Endowed Art Exhibition
Aug. 21-Sept. 18
Opening Reception 6 p.m.
Meg Franklin is a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based artist who was born and raised in Young Harris. Her paintings focus on the raw physicality of objects and explore the haziness of identity in the face of the human need to establish it. Her still lifes are comprised of objects that fall just short of identifiable, creating a sense of recognition while remaining too elusive to name or assign with a function. Franklin earned her B.A. in English and creative writing from Washington and Lee University, her M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Florida, and her M.F.A. in painting from the New York Academy of Art.
