To the Editor:

The Kent Art Association of Kent is a nonprofit fine art gallery.

Our mission is to provide emerging and established artists with a venue to share artwork with the public.

All activities are free and open to the public.

Volunteers do the many jobs required to put on exhibits, receptions and auctions. Several Kent businesses helped KAA with gallery activities.

The Kent Apothecary donated a beautiful gift basket which was presented to one of the lucky members who had renewed their membership by Feb. 14.

Several restaurants donated hors d'oeuvres which helped make each reception unique and allowed visitors to become aware of the wonderful restaurants available in Kent.

The KAA thanks the Fife'n Drum Restaurant, J. P. Gifford Market & Catering Company, Club Getaway, the Villager Restaurant, Davis IGA and the Panini Cafe for their support of the arts in Kent.
