Art e Fekts, an art co-op on South Main Street, Pittston, held a ribbon-cutting and grand opening Dec. 13. The co-op, run by officials of Pittston’s Second Friday Art Walk, features a gallery of work by local artists available for sale and space for local artisans to showcase and sell their work. A jury selects pieces to be displayed and sold at the gallery. There also is space for classes and a photo studio operated by Executive Director Mary Kroptavich.
