Sponsored by Augusta's RedWolf Advertising, Souls of the Midnight Dreamers is a solo art exhibition celebrating human achievement and the power of dreams that come true. Each personality featured in this exhibit began their life’s journey with a dream. That dream became an all-consuming desire. Each person burned the midnight oil, lying in bed until the early morning hours dreaming of how to reach the heights, to land that role, that recording contract, that job they so longed to acquire. They were souls afire, ignited with a passion that kept them dreaming, figuring out ways to move one step closer and doing the work necessary to make their dreams come true. Each person here embodied the soul of a midnight dreamer, and their successes remind us that we, too, can realize our dreams no matter how big or how small they may be.
The exhibition will be on display for the entire month of September with works available for purchase. You're invited to attend as we celebrate the power of achieving our dreams!
Francie Klopotic was born and raised in East Atlanta Village and taught herself to draw faces at the age of ten. A portrait artist for over 45 years, she finds exquisite beauty in the diversity of humanity and has spent most of her life drawing portraits in graphite and colored pencil. In 2018, she began showing her work at galleries and in art shows across the River Region. She has several collectors and many of her works are in private collections across the Southeast, Midwest and New England. In 2021 Francie picked up a paintbrush for the first time and began painting portraits in bold and bright hues. Painting opened up a whole new world for her as an artist, allowing Francie the ability to fully express her love for Pop Art and pop culture in a new way. Her influences include Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Peter Max, and Alex Katz. Francie’s goal as an artist is to encourage others to embrace their own uniqueness and to revel in their beauty, for every human is a work of art.
