Art Gallery Calendar

Kent has been called the "Cultural Heart of the Litchfield Hllls" and for good reason. Kent has focused on art ever since a colony of artists discovered its natural beauty in the late 19th century.  Members of that colony established the Kent Art Association in 1923 and this year the organization, still going strong, is celebrating its 93rd year.

The legacy of those pioneering artists is everywhere.  A casual visitor to Kent will notice that art graces the walls of the Fife ‘n Drum Restaurant and of the Kent Memorial Library.  A number of craft galleries also grace the town center where you can find work of some of the top craftspeople from across the country or an assortment of American, Asian, African and Pacific Island art and antiques.
