KAA - 92 years

Because of the advancing snow the Student Show will be closed this afternoon, March 1.

For the teachers, Student Show pick up has been changed to 3:00 to 5:00 on Monday March 2. If other arrangements are needed please contact KAA via voicemail or email.

Welcome everyone!

We have some great new events coming soon in the gallery to enliven your late winter/early spring.

...First up is our

20th Anniversary STUDENT SHOW

Saturdays and Sundays, 12-4 pm,  Feb. 21, 22, 28, and March 1
Opening reception with refreshments and awards is
Saturday, Feb 21 from 12-4 pm.

Co-chaired by Connie Horton and Davia Fink. 

Noted artists and teachers, Paul Gould of Cornwall, NY (paulgouldart.com) and Al Coffill of Kent, CT, have graciously consented to be our judges. They bring a wealth of experience to the task.

We showcase the fresh and dynamic work of talented secondary school art students from the surrounding area.  Early responding participating schools are: South Kent School, Trinity Pawling, Millbrook High School, Marvelwood, The Gunnery, Danbury High School, and Shepaug Valley Regional School.

This is a must see, kick-off event to our new season, and we always have a great turnout.  Recent standouts have ranged from a striking blue and gold graphic raincoat made from rabbit food bags, to a multi-armed luminous sculpture, giant graphics and delicate drawings.  Discoveries and new talent are around every corner.


Thursday through Sunday, 1-5 pm,
March 8 through April 12.
Opening reception with refreshments and awards is
March 14 from 2-4 pm.

This next show is for all the talented artists among us who have been productive over the long winter.

Co-chairs for this event are Connie Horton and Margaret Solomon.

We are lucky to have as our judges:
sculptor Denis Curtiss of Cornwall Bridge, CT (deniscurtisssculptor.com), Michael Spross, painter and educator from Millbrook, NY, and recognized wildlife painter Scott Zuckerman also from Cornwall Bridge, CT (scottzuckermanart.com).

This is our first look at new oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, drawings and more from our members.  The show includes representational and non-representational work, as well as sculpture in various media.

In other news, New Milford sculptor Patrick Purcell will grace our lawn with some of his innovative outdoor work from March 8 through the month of May. Patrick works with an unusual mix of materials and creates large dynamic works as well as small beautifully detailed pieces.
