Fenton Art Glass
continues 100th anniversary celebration, plans to open kiosk in Polaris
Fashion Place, Columbus, Ohio!
Williamstown, W.Va. – Fenton Art Glass, the largest manufacturer
of handmade colored glass in the United States, is celebrating its
100th anniversary now through August 2005, and will continue the
celebration with the opening of a Fenton Art Glass kiosk in the
Polaris Fashion Place in Columbus, OH on Wednesday June 1, 2005.
The commitment to open a kiosk in Polaris Fashion Place is driven
by the desire to share the Fenton “experience” with a broader
audience who may not be familiar with the century-old,
family-owned glass company. Shoppers will have an opportunity to
touch and feel the glassware and see the rainbow of glass colors
that Fenton is known for. Various events are planned after the
kiosk opens, including artist and decorating demonstrations, glass
identification seminars and glass history talks, as well as the
chance to “make, bake, and take” a Fenton Christmas ornament.
The festivities will continue throughout the summer, in support of
the Centennial Celebration at the Fenton factory in Williamstown,
W.Va., in August 2005. The media is invited to visit the Fenton
Factory and interviews with family members and employees can be
arranged. Interested media outlets should contact Fenton Art Glass
firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
