The Artful Circle Story....
Artful Circle was founded in 2013 by the expert team of Franklin Hill Perrell and Debbie Wells. In addition to art gallery, museum, and art fair events, we work on major curatorial projects for museums and art collectors, including exhibitions, signage, catalog publications and present customized lectures on all things art to private groups and organizations. Enjoy the art world at its best with us!
