Free art shows in Blowing Rock! Meet different High Country artists each week and buy original art directly. This week: Fredrick Craig Franz, Landscapes in Oil and Soft Pastels.
A forty two year resident of Western North Carolina’s High Country, Frederick ‘Craig’ Franz’s home in Avery County is a landscape artist’s dream. His home is at the foot of rugged Grandfather Mountain and on the northern border of the Pisgah National Forest. Four true seasons visit the High Country each year and provide Craig with unlimited inspiration from which to paint. Working in soft pastels and oils, his award-winning paintings are created both plein air and in the studio. Come meet Craig this week at Edgewood Cottage in Blowing Rock.
