Kickin’ it with Kenny at the Screw Factory

by Kathy on February 27, 2015

Kenny Crumpton stopped by the studios today and visited with artists Gina DeSantis, Ruth Sholtis-Furyes and Tony D’Alessandro of RTD Design Collective and Jenn Szalkowski of Night Owl Glass. He also chatted with Alyssa Lee Wilmot, owner of the Movement Factory. Then he checked out the newly expanded event space with landlord Ralph Lukich.

We had a great time giving Kenny a tour this morning. Please remember to save the date for our spring open studio on Friday, March 27th from 6-10pm. A complete list of artists and participants will be available in early March.  Gina DeSantis
