Kent Art Association

Welcome to Autumn in Kent!

We hope you've been enjoying the first days of Autumn. There's really no where nicer in this season than Kent! And, you'll want to stop in the gallery while you're visiting to see the current North East Watercolor Society Show! There are over 90 exceptional examples of the art of watercolor on display.

We're working hard to make the association a valuable resource for you as an artist or as a collector, so, whatever your preferences make time to drop by for the upcoming shows.

...and get in touch if you have ideas of ways we might make KAA better for you!
