We are so weird as a culture around "art" -- so many rules and prohibitions and cultural/class expectations and limitations... FRANK is a great place to shed all that and just walk in! Just like you would a bar or a pizza place. Just go in and see -- there will be some art that you love, some that you don't like at all, and that's all fine. Just go look and see what moves you, see what you learn, see what some of our own local artists are creating and experimenting with. It's free to look, and the displays are always varied and amazing.

And though my family rarely buys "big" art, we've got a pair of paintings on our wall at home that came from FRANK, because it soothed our souls when we saw it. Very grateful to have such a living, free-spirited gallery right where we can visit it easily on Franklin Street!

Located on the main drag -- Franklin Street -- in downtown Chapel Hill, FRANK is a quirky and fun gallery featuring local artists. Most are of a modern nature and are always interesting. We haven't bought any pieces here but have enjoyed the art. They also host occasional special events, and participate in Chapel Hill's Second Friday Art Walk.

The collective of artists who founded Frank are each legends in Chapel Hill, and in the aggregate have created a wonderful gallery downtown on Franklin Street. The shows are excellent, and they have regular events - openings, music, readings, etc. So grateful to have this 5-star spot to stop by of an afternoon. The members take turns staffing and so a visit can come not only with great eye-candy, but also with insights from some of Chapel Hill's finest artists.

Be sure to go on the second Friday of the month for a festive opening feel with wine and snacks and sometimes music.

We went to the opening last year and were impressed. It is a great way for local artists to show their stuff and help cast a vision for CH

The FRANK exhibits some of Orange County's best artist. The best thing is that the shows change on a frequent basis. So come once and then come again later.

Works by local artists features in this nonprofit art gallery in downtown Chapel Hill near UNC campus. Right next to Ackland Art Museum gift store.

This is a member-operated gallery that will give you a good feel for the range and high quality of the artwork being made in the area. There's a mix of jewelry, painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics and information about the local art scene. There is always a member on duty at the desk who can give you background on any artist that catches your eye. There are also events - music, talks, openings - so check the online calendar.

Opening the door to the gallery, a step away from the crowds on Franklin Street, is transformative. The incredible quality and range of work exhibited is unmatched in this area. The openings bring in their own crowds, with a chance to converse with the talented and passionate artists. Special events are creative in their own way, such as Rubbish to Runway and the phenomenal annual FRANK Gala where ticket buyers walk away with unexpected treasures. It was inspiring to see how it members reach out into the community with innovative programs that open the doors of art to diverse groups. It is exciting and satisfying to purchase original pieces that make unique gifts or pull stellar things into your own home. The FRANK has become one of Chapel Hill's treasures.
