UPDATE 1/10/2022 – Doors Open has been postponed. Updated information will be posted when available.
Happy New Year! Here at the Fenton, January is a time for change. The holiday exhibit has started to be packed away until next year. This month we will be welcoming a new Executive Director, and gearing up for a year full of programs and exhibits, both virtual and in-person.
We are looking forward to the return of Doors Open Jamestown on January 22 where the Fenton Mansion will be open free of charge to the community. This event may be postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, please watch our Facebook page for announcements regarding potentially rescheduling this event.
We will be having another Virtual Paint Night on January 20th at 7pm to help break up the boring winter months. This time we will be painting a cute wintery scene on small wooden sleds, a photo of which can be seen in the poster later in this newsletter. Painting will be taught over zoom, kits are available at the Fenton History Center Gift Shop for just $20 and include the sled, paint and brushes and link to the Zoom session. Everything you need to make this fun piece of winter décor. Reservations can be made by stopping by the Fenton History Center Gift Shop to pick up materials or by calling 716-664-6256.
A Valentine themed painting is scheduled for early February as well, watch our Facebook page for more details.
