To the Editor:

The mission of the Kent Art Association is to provide emerging and established artists with a venue to share their artwork with the public.

All gallery activities are free and open to the public.

We thank our volunteers who make these activities possible for 2012.

The donation from the Union Savings Bank helped the gallery continue its fine art program.

The Belgique gift was greatly appreciated by the prize winner.

Wonderful receptions were provided for our guests. A variety of hors d'oeuvres helped make each reception unique and allowed visitors to become aware of the wonderful restaurants available in Kent.

Kent Art Association thanks the Fife'n Drum Restaurant, Doc's Trattoria, J. P. Gifford Market and Catering Company, Club Getaway, The Villager restaurant and Davis IGA for their generosity

Remember: Kent is the place for fine art and fine dining.
