KENT — Kent Art Association announced recently that it has joined the Artists Sunday alliance, and that it will promote local artisans and craftspeople on Artists Sunday, which is celebrated on Nov. 29, the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

Artist Sunday, falling between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, is a day dedicated to encouraging consumers to shop with artists and give something special, unique, and hand-crafted this holiday season. Kent Art Association appreciates the culture artists create and the impact they have on our local community, while adding expression and beauty to our lives.

“As we wrap up the year with our final show, KAA is focused on promoting our member’s works on Artist Sunday to highlight their talents and share with others the joy of art. What better way to support a community organization and what better gift to give than an original painting or photograph from a local artist” says Connie Horton, president of KAA.

Artists from across the country are participating in Artists Sunday, representing a full range of art, hand-crafted items, and performances. The diversity of artisans allows consumers to ‘shop art’ this Artists Sunday and give something personal and meaningful this holiday season.

Located at 21 S. Main St (Rte. 7) in the town of Kent, KAA is a non-profit and volunteer run community organization. Visit www.kentart.org for more information.
