To the Editor:

The Kent Art Association is a nonprofit fine art gallery.

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

Volunteers do the many jobs required to put on exhibits and receptions.

Several Kent businesses help with gallery activities.

The Kent Apothecary donated a beautiful basket of the store's products, which was presented to one of the association members who had reviewed their membership by Feb. 14.

Restaurants donated hors d'oeuvres, making each gallery reception unique and allowing visitors to become aware of the wonderful restaurants available in Kent.

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