It's all about the art for the Krenitsky family.
This month, Beverly Krenitsky, her son, John, and her grandson, Alex, will all display their artwork at Weezie's Corner, 216 Depot St., as the featured artists for this month's Clarks Summit Second Friday Art Walk.
Beverly Krenitsky explained that she began drawing in high school as a hobby and her son, John, followed in her footsteps, picking up the same pastime while at Abington Heights High School. Krenitsky's grandson, Alex, saw his uncle John's cartoons one day and decided to pick up the hobby for himself.
Alex Krenitsky is nine years old and is a fourth-grade student at Newton-Ransom Elementary School and has already won awards for his work at the Harford Fair in Susquehanna County.
Sandy Michalski, the owner of Weezie's Corner, explained why she enjoys working with local artists as a part of the art walks.
"My favorite part of the art walks is working with these talented artists and showing their pieces," she said. "I also enjoy meeting and talking to the customers. I believe that as the art walk continues, more and more people will come to see what art we have locally."
Weezie's Corner opened in October of last year and features handcrafted items as well as original artwork by local artists. Beverly Krenitsky also teaches crocheting and knitting classes at the store.
"The art walk is a very good idea for artists to show their works," Beverly Krenitsky said. "They give people the opportunity to see just how many talented artists there are in this area."
