Bugs in the Barn

Saturday August 8 - Saturday September 26

Kenise Barnes Fine Art 7 Fulling Lane Kent, CT

Kenise Barnes Fine Art is pleased to present a group show featuring the artists Lisa A. Frank, Francine Fox, Margot
Glass, David Konigsberg, Catherine Latson, Joseph Scheer and Elijah Schwartz.
Surrounded, as we are in Northwest CT with abundant nature, the inspiration for curating for Bugs in The Barn exhibition was close at hand. This exhibition focuses on the smallest members of our animal community; the bugs and insects. With environmental changes and habitat loss, we are increasingly aware of the delicate balance of the ecosystem. Butterflies, beetles, moths, other insects and hold a special place in many artists’ hearts for their intricate beauty, delicacy, and essential roles. This show features photographs, monotypes, drawings and watercolors by seven contemporary artists.
