Monhegan Island - Rockwell Kent

On exhibit
"Rockwell Kent: This is My Own"
When: Opens Saturday at the State Museum; runs through May 17

Where: State Museum, Madison Avenue, Empire State Plaza, Albany

Hours: 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., daily, except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day

Cost: Free

An autobiography by Kent
"It's Me O Lord"is quite an interesting, colorful read.
You may be able to find it at your library.

Kent worked as a carpenter to subsidize his painting and large family.
He built 2 homes on Monhegan Island and worked on many others.
One is owned by Jamie Wyeth and the other with studio, until about 4 years ago, was owned by my dear friend Anne Hubert.
It has since been donated by her estate to the Monhegan Museum.

He was born in Tarrytown, NY and spent his later years in the Adirondacks.
Kent's paintings are amazing.
He died shortly before his 89th birthday in 1971.

My next trip home, to upstate NY will definitely include this trip.
