Cory Basil Opens Studio | Gallery in Historic Franklin Tennessee by Cory Basil

Fresh from his time living in Paris, Cory Basil celebrates his return to US soil by opening his studio and showroom to the public.

On the quiet fringe of Historic Franklin, next to the old City Cemetery, sits a cozy yellow house built in the thirties. Here’s where the artist and author Cory Basil creates as the clock spins from day to night, and back again. 

At Imaginebox Emporium you will find a plethora of original works, and most often times, Basil himself. The walls of the two main showrooms are filled with Basil’s creations, painted using multiple mediums, including watercolor, oil, and gauche.

Also on hand are various original sculpture works, high quality art prints, and Basil’s published works of literature and poetry, including The Perils of Fishboy and Everything You’ve Heard is True. Here, you can commission Basil to create a work of art that is fully unique and reflective of you or a loved one. Stop in and take home a treasure that’s all your own.

Imaginebox Emporium’s Summer hours are 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Thursday through Saturday. Basil is also happy to announce that Imaginebox Emporium has been added to the Downtown Franklin Art Scene, which takes place on the first Friday night of every month. The Emporium will also hold the occasional opening night events, both private and public, as new collections are unveiled. 

This Friday, May 6th, from 6 - 9 PM, during the Franklin Art Scene, marks the first opening of the doors to Imaginebox Emporium. You are invited to be the first to take in Historic Franklin’s newest art space. Come and visit a spell, enjoy a glass of wine, and purchase original art from Cory Basil. Imaginebox Emporium is located at 311 North Margin Street in Franklin, Tennessee

Whatever your social media poison may be, dive in and follow Imaginebox Emporium on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, and stay up to date on the latest happenings.

Fishboy Release Day! by Cory Basil

FishboyCover

Today, 1 October 2013, The Perils of Fishboy: A Tale Split in Two is finally available to you! I am told that today is the LAST day for you to be entered in the drawing to win an original illustration of mine from the book. So if you've yet to purchase, head on over to fogink's website before midnight PST and get your order in.

Follow this link to order! 

Below is the third teaser trailer for the book. When I was a child I was fascinated by the maps included in the front of books, I'd study them for what seemed like hours and would let my imagination take me inside to live for a while. That being said, it was a must that I create a map detailing this wonderful world under the ocean.

Enjoy, and thank you for your continued support of my art! cB
