"From Within: County Jail Expressions" is an exhibit of the artwork by women incarcerated in the Franklin County Jail. The one-week art show will begin Saturday, September 21st with an opening reception from 5 to 7pm at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art. The work was created by the inmates over the past six months in a class led by artist Jenny Odom and Holly Brown.  All proceeds from the sale of art will go to the Franklin County Sheriff's Fund for drug rehabilitation. "Our mission is to be the resource in the Florida Panhandle to help those wanting to recover from the physical and mental illness resulting from drug abuse and other addictions," says Sheriff AJ Smith. He has set up a nonprofit to raise money to transform the prison work camp on Route 98 into the "Bay City Wellness Center."
