Margi Hafer has lived in Frankfort for 43 years and has created art for as long as she remembers. She has multiple fine arts degrees, has taught students at all levels and even tried her hand at running a gallery in Frankfort.

But she has never seen an effort in her hometown quite like the Frankfort Arts Association, a burgeoning organization that formally opened its new art gallery Nov. 17 in downtown Frankfort. The space — which will host exhibits, classes and lectures — represents a big milestone for the group and Frankfort’s artistic scene, those involved said.
