Current show: Paintings by Fran Thomas and Donna Bouchillon
Fran Thomas, born in Macon, GA, graduated with a BFA from Auburn University and arrived on the Savannah art scene in 2002 with the opening of Gallery 440. In 2009 she closed her gallery to free up time to paint and write. Her work can be found in many private and corporate collections, at the Downstairs Gallery in Savannah, and the Gallery of Macon Arts Alliance and the Ocmulgee Arts Gallery in Macon. In addition to her art degree, Fran studied with Henry Hensch at the Cape School of Art in Provincetown, Massachusetts; took courses at VCU, The Studio School at VMFA, and at Nimrod in Virginia; and painted independently in Italy for twelve years.
Donna Bouchillon began to pursue painting following a 32-year career with the U.S. District Court. A native Savannahian, she has studied with numerous painters, photographers and naturalists to capture scenes from our local marshes and woodlands, wildlife, nesting birds, shrimp boats readying for work, florals and even old jalopy trucks.
Please join the artists at their opening reception on Thursday, April 6 between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. The show will hang through June 30, 2017
