CRITIC’S PICK: Ruth Franklin: Golden Isles, A One-Woman Show, Different Trains Gallery — A new series of small works by English contemporary artist Ruth Franklin will be on show at Different Trains during May. She refers to them as her ‘daubs.’ The exhibition will be part of the Decatur ArtWalk on Friday, May 3 and an opening reception will take place that evening at the gallery from 5 to 9 p.m., and it’s open to all. The new paintings will be available to view and purchase online the same day. The show will also coincide with the Decatur Arts Festival that weekend. Franklin established her studio in Decatur thirty years ago and is known for toiling in it practically every day of the week. The title of the show, Golden Isles, is inspired by recent visits to St. Simons Island (to visit her newly minted grandchild) as well as her past life in the British Isles. — Kevin C. Madigan
Free entry. The gallery will be open during the weekend of the Decatur Arts Festival, then again on May 9-11 and on May 16-18, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and also by appointment. Different Trains Gallery, 432 East Howard Avenue, Decatur 30030. 404-939-2787

From the venue:

Ruth Franklin is an English, contemporary, painter who emigrated to the US thirty years ago, where she established a studio in Decatur, Georgia. Her new series of small paintings, filled with a dreamlike, soulful sense of life and place are in part inspired by visits to Saint Simons Island in Coastal Georgia and  memories of rural England. They will be featured in a one-woman show opening May 3 at Different Trains Gallery, during the Decatur ArtWalk.
