‘Confabulations’ By Richard Franklin

Washington, D.C. artist Richard Franklin said his art has “a powerful and unique color voice.” I love his use of the word “voice.” Visual art is chatty, always trying to communicate with the viewer in front of it. Apparently his large mixed media abstracts have a lot to say. Jill Baker, director of the Roberta Marx Gallery, met him in South Korea. “These are the works of a man who has developed an original style over many years, using a highly sophisticated knowledge of color and composition,” she said. A few of the works have been created specifically for Louisville. The reception is on Sunday, May 5 at 12:30 p.m.
