Southwest Gallery cordially invites you to meet
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10TH from 1-5pm and experience his latest creations!

Kent’s superbly executed paintings blend the schools of romantic realism and impressionism. Self-taught, his develoment as an artist was instinctive, his use of color and composition lend themselves to an incredible beauty which reflects intensity, and yet, a gentle inspirational calm and strength. “His impressionistic technique lends a spontaneous touch while his palette of bold, vivid color creates an atmosphere of joy. He defines impressionism as ‘catching the fleeting moment in a landscape and putting down quickly on the canvas the impressions that first come to you.’ Though romantic subjects, rich colors, and spontaneous technique are his vehicles for conveying joy, its source is ultimately the artist, himself. On any given day he can be seen painting in time to Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” or joking heartily with one of his children who has nestled into the reclining chair in his studio. Ultimately, the uplifting perspective of his paintings is the harmonious combination of each of these elements coupled with his unceasing drive to capture on canvas the best life has to offer.”
