Dorli’s Art Gallery

ART EXHIBIT ART AT THE KENT LIBRARY

The Monday Morning Art Group

The current art exhibit is the work of the members of The Monday Morning Art Group. They meet at the home of Dorli and François Di Gregorio, where they paint in an art studio overlooking the beautiful Fuller Mountain.

The Monday Morning Art Group was started by the late Maggie Smith in the 1980s. The only requirement was an interest in painting in watercolors. Today they paint in several media, and one member is a sculptress. The group was originally formed for seniors and they met at Kent Center School.

The exhibit will remain until December 31. Many of the paintings are for sale. A portion of the proceeds is to benefit the Library

PHOTO EXHIBITS

BARN AGAIN

“Barn Again” is a traveling exposition developed by the Smithsonian Institution. It has been touring the United States during the past years. Kent has been chosen to host the exhibit at the historic house,  Seven Hearths. Some of Dorli’s barn pictures will be exhibited there. For more info on Barn Again , check the site:                                                 www.museumonmainstreet.org/about.htm.

“Barn Again” est le titre d’une exposition qui est en train d’être presentée dans plusieurs états des Etats Unis. Puisque Kent a été choisi comme l’un des sites Dorli va avoir certaines de ses photos exposées à la maison historique Seven Hearths de Kent. “Barn” aux Etats Unis est une  icone des temps passés. L’équivalent pourrait être  une sorte de hangar agricole  construit en bois trés prévalent au début du XX ième siècle dans le continent nord américain. De plus “Barn Again” (Encore des granges) est aussi un jeu de mots sur “Born Again” appellation que l’on donne aux régénérés religieux ou évangelistes qui tout dernièrement ont eu une influence décisive durant les élections présidentielles.Pour plus de détails en anglais voir le site: www.museumonmainstreet.org/about.htm.

Voila donc quelques uns de ces vieux édifices que l’on peut voir encore tout autour de Kent.
Here are some of Dorli’s barn photos taken around Kent  that may be chosen for the Barn Again exhibit.
