Kingston, NY – Local arts businesses will gather Thursday, Dec. 8th for an expo of all things made in Kingston at a new studio space under development in Midtown, the city’s up-and-coming arts district.
The fourth annual Made In Kingston event will be co-sponsored by the City of Kingston, Kingston Midtown Arts District, Arts Mid Hudson, the Business Alliance of Kingston and TRANSART. The event continues the momentum that has been building since planning for a Midtown arts district began two years ago
The 4 to 8 pm event is open to the public. In addition to more than four dozen artists, the evening will feature food, beverages and musical entertainment. Attendees will set up their wares on the 1st floor of Ferrovia Studios, an artist-owned and occupied former warehouse with entrances both at 17 Railroad Avenue and 22 Thomas St
The 15,000 square foot building has had former lives as a coat factory, roller rink/bowling alley and an antique restoration business. Angela Rose Voulgarelis, a visual artist, will be managing Ferrovia Studios, and will be working with the architect Turu Illgen on renovations. The building will offer a select number of artists’ studios, exhibition space, a large ground floor space and two storefronts. A 75 kW solar installation acting as a canopy for parked cars on Railroad Avenue will provide electric power to the building.
