Art lovers will swoon for unique creations
KINGMAN – A nice selection of beautifully handcrafted gifts, all reasonably priced.
That’s what patrons will find at The Hen House (2 Vintage Chicks) in downtown Kingman.
Teresa Wagner and Linda Thompson have teamed up to create The Hen House, which will officially open its doors at 704 E. Beale Street on Friday, July 1.
The two friends will be offering a variety of unique and original handmade art and gift items for sale to the public. There is also a large DIY section including art supplies.
“We decided to start up this shop/gallery mostly for the joy we find in quilting, painting and crafting,” said Wagner. “Linda can fix just about any paint issue, and has created many, many beautiful paintings and home décor. And I create handmade quilts. We have many quilts on our racks to choose from. Linda also offered custom painting.”
“I had an art studio and offered art classes in the past,” stated Thompson. “I lost my students and went from a thriving business to a shuttered business during the COVID-19 shutdown. Teresa and I are excited and proud to now be offering this upscale venue for local residents.”
The two artisans are also active in the community, serving on the Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce, Kingman Rebekah Lodge #12, OES #17, KRMC Hospice, and the Kingman Cancer Care Unit.
Linda has had an art studio and gift shop for the past 29 years. She also offered classes. “Theresa and I are excited and proud to be offering this upscale venue for residents,” said Thompson.
