The Frankfort Chamber of Commerce will also hold its Community Showcase on Sunday.

“FAA is grateful to have regular art exhibits at Studio C and Frankfort Village Hall,” Cooley said. “We continue to search for a permanent home with space not only for gallery exhibits, but also for a retail gift shop, classroom, and studio spaces we can rent to artists. We hope that in the not-too-distant future, we will be able to share an entire art center, enriching our community by supporting and celebrating the artists in all of us.”

Art on the Green will feature 38 booths, with local artists and organizations. If weather is bad, the event will be held at the Founders Center.

“Please consider joining a committee or simply becoming a member. It is a wonderful way to get to know more like-minded creatives,” Cooley said.
