Upcoming Events

10.4 Art Walk with Ocasiocasa WEB


ART WALK  Friday, October 4, 6–10pm

It's the Time for Some Playful Mayhem
You are invited to enjoy the The Bonfires of the Monster Marshmallows ! The window display of The Franklin Shops was created once again by Jeff and Dale of Ocasiocasa Artworks. The award-winning local artists who refer to their work as ‘happy art for odd people’ design and make their sculptured and illustrative art collaboratively. The art installation includes a wooded campfire scene of skeleton-clad trick-or-treaters roasting terrified marshmallows. Dale explains: "If Ocasiocasa was its own little world, then the inhabitants in this exhibit are from the shadows of that realm. While October is the time of the year for fun and playful mayhem, it’s also when Jeff and I like to create from the shadier and more obscure places of our imaginations.” Join the artistic couple for a Meet & Greet in front of the Franklin Shops during the Art Walk as they demonstrate and talk about their unique sculpting techniques with paper masking tape. See you at the shops on Art Walk night!
