The Franklin Arts Center Resident Artists Gallery presents our May exhibition titled, “Mono Pop”. An exhibition combining two very different concepts and techniques within each piece of artwork, or on their own, depending on the artist’s perspective. The title Mono Pop, is created from the word monochromatic and the “pop” effect from something that is 3D.
In this exhibition, we invite artists to explore one or both of these concepts within their artwork. We will be accepting artwork that is either (1) monochromatic, (2) 3D, or (3) incorporates both monochromatic and 3D designs. Artwork that incorporates 3D aspects can be both real and implied. This group exhibition will be on display in our back gallery space throughout the month of May. All artists that submit artwork, that fits the theme and guidelines, will be included in this exhibition.
