Meet our Members and Board

Sharon Franke


4/26/2024 - There was a fantastic turn-out for Sharon's opening tonight.  Not surprisingly, attendees were treated to an amazing display of art.  The title of this show could not have been more appropriate and each/every piece had that "wow" factor all artists strive to achieve.  If you didn't make it to the opening reception, you'll want to make every effort to get to Cantrell Gallery soon to catch Sharon's show!
