When do impresarios hit full stride? For artist and arts presenter Renee Darmstadt, the force behind Cornell Street Studios in Midtown Kingston, you’d have to be speaking about the creativity that one remembers from one’s 20s.
This Saturday, May 10, she kicks off her latest extravaganza, a “Garden Party” complete with floral-themed art exhibit, a bridal fashion show spotlighting local designers, a dance party and plenty of local food and music, as well as the sponsoring support of Kingston’s business owners. Some of the design shops involved will be Kingston’s Ellipse, Juda Leah of Saugerties, Holly McCabe, Shoshona Snow and Galipette Vintage. Outdoors will be a “mini-expo” with Milne’s At Home Antiques, Pippy’s Hot Dog Truck, David Temple, Photobooth Fun Time! Jen Kiaba Photography, Petalos, Sav-On Party Center, Ruth Silvers Photographer, the Farm and more. Best of all? This is the Garden Show’s third annual outing. You go, girl!
Garden Party & Bridal Fashion Show, Saturday, May 10, 6-10 p.m., $15/$10, Cornell Street Studios, Darmstadt Overhead Doors building (second floor), 168 Cornell Street, Kingston; (845) 331-0191, www.cornellstreetstudios.com.
