Interplay, Art at the Kent
September 23 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 9, 2022
A thoughtful exploration of diverse creations that illuminate time, memory, and personal story. Twenty Vermont contemporary artists express themselves in paintings, prints, photographs, and works of metal, glass, fiber, and wood. Art at the Kent hosts a lively conversation between these artists, their work, and the unforgettable historic buildings which contain the show. In this once-a-year exhibition, visitors can view these works inside the rambling historic structures of the Kents’ Corner State Historic Site—as well as throughout the grounds. An Opening Celebration will feature music, food and drink on Saturday, September 10, from 3 to 5 pm. “In many ways this show exudes all the strengths for which Art at the Kent exhibitions have achieved renown,” states Vermont State Curator David Schutz. “We start with the empty, somewhat deconstructed historic buildings—and add the artists that we feel have work that might resonate in some way with that setting—but also with one another. And because many of these artists are long-held favorites who have never exhibited with us before, the passionate voice of enthusiastic curators also comes through.” In addition, Art at the Kent hosts a variety of associated events that visitors can experience, including Words Out Loud, our popular Sunday afternoon reading series (September 18, 25, and October 2) at the nearby Old West Church, as well as an illustrated talk by acclaimed author/artist David Macaulay.
