The art of Frankie Burns will cover 2nd Ave. Art Guild from 6 to 8 p.m.
From Lakin, Burns fell in love with art at an early age that carried through high school and into college.
Originally majoring in elementary education, it wasn't until his second year at Garden City Community College that Burns changed to an art major under the tutelage of Kyle Chaput and Brian McCallum.
Influenced by Andy Warhol and Wayne Theibuad, Burns pushed boundaries and began using uncommon materials such as wood, distressed paper, and objects that can commonly found in any salvage yard while also experimenting with color, according to art guild member Jennifer Nolan.
