SUNY Plattsburgh Curator Scott Ferris on Rockwell Kent Exhibit

SUNY Plattsburgh this summer is showcasing the evolution of Adirondack Painter Rockwell Kent’s works through the years. We talked with Curator and Rockwell Kent scholar Scott Ferris about the exhibit, Origins: The Evolution of an Artist and His Craft which runs through August 11th at the Rockwell Kent Gallery on campus. The Plattsburgh State Art Museum has teamed up with Ferris to present the exhibit that showcases how Kent’s ideas developed from sketches and drawings into finished compositions. Visitors will see paintings as well as many of his drawings, prints, photographs, and advertising Kent created. The exhibit draws on the huge collection of Kent’s works at SUNY Plattsburgh. The Rockwell Kent Collection at the college is one of the most extensive and comprehensive in the world.
