Kentuck Art Night | September

  • Kentuck Art Center 503 Main Avenue Northport, AL 35401 USA (map)

JOIN US FOR THIS FREE FAMILY-FRIENDLY EVENT! Art Night occurs the first Thursday of each month at Kentuck Art Center in Historic Downtown Northport, Alabama.

Museum Gallery:
Kentuck Art Center is proud to present the sculpture of Dennis Thompson. He has won numerous awards but is most famous for turning down a ground floor opportunity with a little company called "Dreamworks" in the early '70s.

He says: "The inspiration for my sculpture is based in my longstanding interest in paleontology and archaeology; an exploration of how universal forms evolve and adapt. I create sculpture that reflects the fluid and dynamic forms found in the natural world. My curiosity about how these forms developed and how different cultures perceive these forms is the driving force behind my work. My work is often viewed as "fantasy" art. However, for me, the dragons developed more as a cultural interpretation of archetypal reptilian forms rather than a representation of mythological creatures. The sculptures I build are diverse and encompass a wide range of richly organic forms. It's all about the bones."

Teer Gallery:
In their very own group gallery exhibit, the Imagination and Enrichment Kids, alongside the Clay Camp Kids, are taking over September Art Night at Kentuck Art Center in downtown historic Northport!
