Welcoming Spring with Art and Fine Craft in Glass, Wood and Painting Kim Filkins, Lena Thynell, Steve Strouse. Kimberly Filkins Kimberly Brooks Filkins has been working in warm glass for the past 15 years and been a juried artist in the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts for the past 11 years. Each of Kim’s pieces are unique. Whether making a functional plate or platter or sculptural art glass, she is limited only by the expanse of her imagination and the size of her kiln. Kim continues to create and evolve as an artist. She looks forward to demonstrating glass cutting, bending stringers and painting with frit on the 5th and 6th at the Gallery Shop and of course discussing her passion, the process of glass fusing. Other date TBA.
