Wood sculpture returns to Franklin

A couple of weeks ago another installation by Tasmanian artist Marcus Tatton appeared in front of the Church Studio in Franklin. It's not on such a grand scale as the one on display during last year's Focus on Franklin festival, but I really like it and it looks great outside the former church. This beautiful landmark building in Franklin is for sale at the moment as the owners will be returning to Queensland. As well as the gallery and artist-in-residence studio at the front, there is a lovely home tucked away at the back. For an artist or someone with with the right business idea, this would be a great opportunity. I do hope the space continues to benefit the local community, as it has with the current owners, who have hosted music afternoons and numerous exhibitions for all to enjoy.
