An opening reception for the exhibit "Our DNA" will be held August 26 from 5PM to 7PM at the Gallery on the Square in Franklin. The exhibit features the photography of Neilson Hubbard.
Hubbard described the exhibit saying, "Our DNA is an exhibit of simple portraits telling a story of intimacy and connection. It shows the vulnerability and spirit that we all process and share. Being a native Mississippian, I have spent the last several years visiting the Delta, meeting people, and taking these types of portraits. When I moved with my family to Franklin KY, I wanted to document some of the wonderful people we were meeting in the same way. This exhibit is to celebrate the people of Franklin and the surrounding south.... to celebrate seeing one another for what we have in common as well as how we are unique. This is our DNA."
