Art Studio 126 Main in Penn Yan reopens after flooding

]Penn Yan’s newest art studio opened in June 2020 on Main Street in Penn Yan by Crissy McGinness and Macy Hall. It was their dream to open a boutique to take their skills and craftsmanship to the next level, and that’s exactly what they did – unfortunately during a pandemic which presented many challenges, but they have success.

The Art Studio 126 Main location is at the back entrance of the Village Drug Store. Follow the path and signs through the Main Street mini-park to their work studio and shop. Inside, you’ll find a colorful array of glass mosaics, clay sculptures, jewelry, needle-felted designs, hand-painted Adirondack chairs, and more.

In February, the store was damaged by a winter storm and had to unexpectedly close for almost a month for repairs. Since enduring opening a business during a pandemic, it was just a bump in the road for the enthusiastic duo.

Friday, March 4andthey were able to reopen to the public with a ribbon cutting to celebrate with the Yates County Chamber of Commerce after recently joining as a member of the chamber.

“We are delighted to be open again and look forward to seeing everyone. After two years of Covid restrictions, we are looking forward to summer and growing our community ties. Downtown Penn Yan has grown so much over the past few years, and we are blessed to be a part of it,” said Crissy McGinness.

Their current hours are Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Summer hours start May 1St, and they will be Thursday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram for updates and new articles.
