Vacation Days (Conclusion)

I probably won't be blogging again until Thursday. Tomorrow morning, photographer Eric Mencher and I will be taking off for Tunkhannock to do some reporting on the art scene I've blogged about. One stop I haven't mentioned is the Springville Shoolhouse Art Studios in Springville, which is in Susquehanna County, the one immediately north of Wyoming, where Tunkhannock is. The Springville Schoolhouse Art Studios is a work in progress. For 31 years, from 1925 to 1956, the building housed the Springville village schoolhouse (grades one through 12). It's now owned by painter James Penedos and sculptor Charles Welles, and James and his brother Carlos -- especially his brother Carlos -- are renovating and restoring the building, turning it into art studios. The first and second floors already have a variety of live-in studio workshop spaces, ranging from 300 to 900 square feet with 12-foot ceilings. Each studio has a private bathroom, kitchen and sleeping loft. Each also has a high-speed Internet connection. A perfect vacation spot for the artistically inclined. You can read more about it here.
