Franki’s Franklin Arts is a new exhibition space located at Franki’s Sandwich and Grill, 7 Old Post Road South.

Franklin Arts is a noncommercial exhibition space: sale of any artwork is managed exclusively by the artist showing – there is no commission, no hanging fee.

First exhibit: Community Portraits. Alan Pakaln will be on site at various times photographing anyone wishing to participate. Anyone can submit a photograph, just email it to:  It will be printed and hung. At the end of the exhibit, participants can receive a copy of their photograph. 

Please contact Alan if you are interested in showing at a future date (spring-summer, 2022).

The exhibition space is approximately 15′ long and 3-4′ high. The hanging rail can accommodate virtually any arrangement within this area, accommodating weights up to 34 lbs per rail (3 rails).
