ON THE LAWN
The lawn at the Kent Art Association has been anointed with two newly created steel sculptures by Pete Rembetsy entitiled "Icarus" and "Up the Corporate Building". Like all of Pete's work these pieces are both dramatic, and evocative.
Pete's work will be on display for the rest of the season.
