Ansbach Artisans Fine Art Gallery in Franklin on June 21 will be hosting a special edition of its monthly Saturday Night Live Art (SNL Art) event in The Factory at Franklin as part of the 2016 Business & Education Expo hosted by the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce.
There will be 12 featured artists painting live at The Factory including: Roy Laws, Pam Francis, Lisa Eisenga, Laura Neal, Chris Ousley, Carol Moon, Dolly Georgieva-Gode, Omari Booker, Elisheba Israel, Kate Cloud, Leah Boorse and Kimberly Fox.
Jazz guitarist Mel Deal will also be playing during the event.
“We’re proud to be part of the 2016 Business & Education Expo and to have the opportunity to introduce more people to these outstanding local artists,” said Ansbach Artisans owner Michael Phillips.
The event takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 21 at The Factory at Franklin, located at 230 Franklin Road. SNL Art is family friendly and open to the public. Visitors can mix and mingle with other guests, talk to the artists and observe as their works come to life, and view and purchase finished works by the artists.
Michael Phillips opened Ansbach Artisans in May 2015 at 1974 Wilson Pike in Franklin, the former site of Jamison Market. The gallery features only original works by Middle Tennessee artists. The gallery is named for the city of Ansbach, Germany where Phillips served in the Army as a Black Hawk helicopter pilot.
