For those of you who missed the preview opening of the Friends of Kent Exhibition, all I can say is,“WOW!”
It was a spectacular event in Omaha. We estimate that over 350 people attended throughout the evening. They arrived in waves starting promptly at 6 pm. By 8, the gallery was filled with hundreds of people. It was then that my friend, Robert Duncan, asked if I would show him how the big door worked. As I proceeded to open it, the chatter of the crowd grew quiet as people turned to see what was happening. When it reached its peak, everyone broke out in a thunderous applause! It was a dramatic and defining moment for all of us who helped bring this dream to reality.
Moving forward: We now have established Gallery hours:
FRIDAY SATURDAY SUNDAY 11 am—5 pm
First Friday 11 am—8 pm
SAVE THE DATE JANUARY 8, 2016
The Friends of Kent Exhibit will be on display through January 10th and we are pleased to announce that Dr. Molly Hutton will give a talk at the gallery on Friday, January 8th. We plan to videotape her comments for the archives along with each collector, friends, and artists who have an anecdotal story about Kent to share.
A huge thanks to friends and supporters of Gallery 1516,
