Carol Corey Fine Art
Carol Corey Fine Art is thrilled to inaugurate its new gallery space at 12 Old Barn Road in Kent Barns with its first exhibition on Saturday, Dec. 5th, "Beginning." The artists included in the show are connected in their celebration of the world around them. Dozier Bell, Dina Brodsky, David Morrison, and Eileen Murphy are each keen observers of the natural world, and their meticulous and detailed works on paper and paintings strike a poignant chord in the viewer. Elise Ansel, Andy Harper, and Emily Eveleth's lush use of paint and voluptuous subject matter are seductively engaging. And Roz Chast's brilliant interpretations of the human condition are instantly recognizable and relatable.

Gallery Hours:  Thursday - Sunday 11 am - 5:30 pm

Craven Contemporary
Craven Contemporary is excited to announce the opening of its new show “Bruno Leydet” on December 12th with 14 amazing works by the Montreal based painter. This is Bruno’s first solo show in the USA. Bruno explains his work “my portraits are like tableaux vivants - they’re not scenes from everyday life but inspired by it. They are landscapes of my mood when I painted them. Often, a figure is a starting point. Patterns and juxtapositions appear almost organically. Or I have something in mind already and it happens to fit.” Hours: Sat. 11-5 pm Sun. 12-5 pm Craven Contemporary
