TREVORTON – Anthracite Creative Works, an art studio in Trevorton, will hold a grand reopening and grand opening ceremony on Friday after the property closed due to fire damage in 2021.

“We’re excited to share everything we’ve been working on,” Phoebe R. Heath, owner and operator of the 321 W. Shamokin St. property, said in a statement. “The ribbon-cutting ceremony of Anthracite Creative Works marks the start of a new era in our service to the coal region through the arts.”

The studio was damaged by a fire in the building on Dec. 27 and has since been closed for restoration, according to a statement about the reopening. The studio opened in September 2021 and offered art classes, events and sales.

Members of the Bucknell Small Business Development Center (SBDC) as well as current and former students of Anthracite Creative Works will be at the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. to attend and comment on the impact of the studio.

“We are thrilled that the SBDC has agreed to join our celebration alongside the children we serve,” Heath said. “Our dream of completely renovating our studio would not have been possible without their support.”

After the grand opening, the celebration will continue until 8 p.m. with music, arts, giveaways, and sales and class information. Food will be available at Maurer’s Smokin in Shamokin BBQ Trailer.
