"Black & White" at Craven Contemporary

Saturday March 20 - Sunday May 16

4 Fulling Lane Kent Barns Kent, CT

Craven Contemporary is excited to announce the opening of its new show “Black and White” on Saturday, March 20th.

“Black and White” is a group show of works exactly as its title suggests, works in a mix of mediums including video, painting, photography and prints which are either black or black and white.

The mainstay of the show is a video installation by Brian Bress. Bress is a Los Angeles based multi-media artist who describes himself as ‘coming to video with the agenda of a painter’. In this series of works Bress dresses up in costume - here as an astronaut - and films himself drawing on a glass screen in front of him. An interesting point to note is the artist cannot actually see what he is drawing because of the costume. The work is at once both humorous and incredibly captivating.

Another of the major works in the show is Warhol’s ‘Unititled 12, from For Meyer Shapiro’. This predominantly black work is a composition of Warhol’s most iconic subjects such as the Campbell’s Soup, Cow, Flowers, Brillo Box and Mona Lisa - all in one single work. It is quintessentially Warhol and a work that is in many museum collections including MoMA and the Met. To view the show online click HERE

"We've All Gone to Look for America" at Kenise Barnes Fine Art

Saturday March 20 - Saturday May 1

7 Fulling Lane Kent Barns Kent, CT

"We've All Gone to Look for America": An exhibition of landscape paintings by David Konigsberg, Thomas Sarrantonio, Francis Sills, Sophie Treppendahl.

The exhibition title is taken from the well-loved Simon and Garfunkel ballad recounting a bus trip across America, and the hours spent looking out the window as the landscapes slide by. The song and the exhibition share a sentiment of longing and searching for meaning. In the wake of the past year, I think we are yearning for the America that we remember in our mind’s eye. “Michigan seems like a dream to me now…”

Gallery Hours: Kent, CT: Thursday - Saturday, 11:00 - 5:30 and Sunday 12:00 - 4:00 And by appointment Kenise Barnes Fine Art

Covid 19 Vaccination Site in Kent Barns

Saturday April 3 - Monday September 27

17 Old Barn Road in Kent Barns

KENT — Kent’s first vaccination site has been established by High Watch Recovery Center, 17 Old Barn Road, in the Kent Barns shopping center. The space, donated by Kent Barns, is operated by High Watch employees and volunteers. “As we worked to get our own health care providers registered for vaccinations, we realized there weren’t a lot of options in the Northwest Corner,” said Jason Perillo, High Watch vice president. “This gives folks who live and work in the area a more convenient option.”

To schedule appointments, register HERE. If you don't see HIGH WATCH listed it simply means they don't have the vaccines for your age group at this point. Check back as the system will be updated when they do. Those without online access can call 877-918-2224, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The clinic opens at 9 am and closes at 5 pm. Vaccinations are given at Kent Barns (NOT their main campus on Carter Road) They cannot vaccinate NY residents.
