Joseph Kendrick, Assistant Director of the CMFA, sees this as a great opportunity for the arts to flourish in 2022. “Hosting this event outside of the ArtSpace is ideal for us as we continue to develop our larger 'incubating' role as supporter of the arts in Columbia. We want to bring culturally enriching projects into the broader public. Because of the intimate space of The Pastor’s Study we can showcase quality craft more quickly; thematically perfect for the recurring First Thursday on Main event."
