KAA - 91 years

Dear Members and Friends of the Kent Art Association:

Thank you in advance for your continued support of Kent Art Association. We hope you had a chance to visit the gallery to view the wonderful artwork on display. We held a student show, two Member Shows, the Spring Juried Show, the President's Show, The Elected Artists' Invitation & Solo Show, and the Gala Fundraiser. Our visitors enjoyed Jane Carlson's paintings featured in her Solo Show. Paul Gould's informative presentation on art and frame restoration was well attended. Large sculptures by Dennis Bialek, Jennifer George Andreas, and Bob Hill graced the gallery lawn attracted viewers and photographers. We appreciate the continued support of several very special Kent businesses. With their donations, we are able to present a wide variety of refreshments adding interest to our receptions and encouraging the attendance of the public to view exhibitions. Volunteers make all these events possible.

Kent Art Association opens its exhibits and receptions free of charge to the public. The association encourages established and emerging artists to show their work in our spacious gallery. Artists and anyone interested in art is encouraged to join our organization. Most of the funds collected from dues and entry fees are used to put on exhibitions and provide prize money. The Kent Art Association depends on its Annual Appeal to help cover the cost of heat, electricity, routine maintenance of our gallery, and funds to increase awards presented to artists. Your generous donation will help us continue to serve our mission of exhibiting fine art and educating artists and the public.

This year we painted parts of the building and upgraded our lighting. Please make a gift at the level that is appropriate for you and your family. Each gift brings us one step closer to reaching our goals of maintaining the Kent Art Association building and funding awards for artists. Your donation, whether by cash, check, or credit card is tax deductible.

Please take a moment to send your tax deductible check payable to Kent Art Association to continue to bring quality art to our region. Your entire donation is considered a charitable contribution as we are a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization. Send your check to:

Thank you!

The Kent Art Association is closed for the winter as we prepare for another year of exhibitions showcasing the fine art of our members and other artists from our region. As usual, we will host five KAA shows in 2015, including two open juried shows and two unjuried member shows, all with generous awards.

Please consider joining us, either as a member or as a patron.
