FRANK GALLERY POP-UP SHOWAs many people travel home for the holidays, the member artists of Chapel Hill's FRANK Gallery are heading the other way. After seven years on Franklin Street, the regional artists' nonprofit is filling the void for a gallery—after Tyndall Galleries' departure to cyberspace—to the ever less mall-like University Place (anyone else kind of miss Roses and Kerr Drugs?), where it has a grand reopening on February 9. While FRANK will remain open in its current location until December 22, it also begins a monthlong preview of its new digs this Friday. "We are excited about the broader accessibility and the larger space for outreach exhibits and programs," gallery manager Gordon Jameson said in a press release on his way out the door. As of November 28, Jameson will be replaced by Natalie Knox, who, with a minor in art history and "extensive experience in retail management and merchandizing," seems well chosen to lead FRANK out of the food court that formerly funky Franklin Street has become and into the lifestyle-commerce arena of Silverspot, Kidzu Children's Museum, and Planet Fitness. —Brian Howe
