New Franklin art exhibit

An art show by painter Gosia Babcock, “Bold Menagerie” will be on display in the Macon County Public Library Meeting Room during the month of March.

“My love of painting started early in life. Born in Poland, I was raised on a farm, where I took pleasure in caring for the animals. When I was 10, my family moved to America,” Babcock said. “I began painting, and it became my ‘happy place.’ When I painted, I could escape for hours as I found ways to communicate non-verbally. When I painted animals, I could feel them, and give them life. I took comfort in the beauty of nature that surrounded me.” 

Babcock went on to add, “As I have gotten older, I have continued to use painting as my place to relax and lose myself. It is my therapy. Being semi-retired has given me even more opportunities to discover the wealth of subjects and materials available. I love expressing myself on canvas and look forward to sharing my vision of God’s creations including animals, people, scenery and even breathe energy into inanimate objects.”
