The art work on display includes graphic design and photography by Kristin Bone and jewelry, photography and pottery by Nathan Fought.
Fought is a resident of Williamsport, Pennsylvania. He is the son of Robin Holmes of Williamsport, Pa. and Richard Fought of Millville, Pa. He has been a volunteer firefighter for the local area for 9 years and an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) for 7 years now. He plans to move to South Carolina to pursue a career as a firefighter at Myrtle Beach Fire Department. In addition, Fought said, “I hope to get enough money saved up within the first year to get the funds to create my own pottery studio and continuing to take photographs of the natural life of the beach including underwater photography. I hope to go to graduate school to get my Masters of Fine Arts and become a professor at an art university in Pennsylvania, but that won’t be for several years.” Fought added, “I feel that it is important to take what knowledge was taught to me and pass it down through the generations.”
Bone is from Royersford, Pennsylvania. She is the daughter of Richard and Shelly Bone if Royersford, Pa. After graduation, she plans to get an internship at a professional photography/graphics company to gain valuable experience before getting a full time job as a photographer near her home town in the Philadelphia area.
