Kenny Cole’s art is intuitive, often political and reflects a clear fluency of contemporary issues, fitting neatly into the continuum of modern art. Kenny shows his work in the Mid Coast area of Maine, in Portland, Maine, in N.Y.C. and internationally. He offers interactive paintings on canvas, gouache, ink and watercolor on paper and silk-screen prints. Kenny’s art is a visionary mix with an activist inspired political thrust.
“Kenny Cole’s work is completely current and fresh, and has the smoking gun of sophisticated, “make you think”, power that comes with experience— the ultimate cocktail!!” – Carly Glovinski
Kenny’s studio, one of the last remaining farm houses with a connected barn on Main Street in Monroe, is a 100 year-old structure in the town center. Monroe has acres of rolling fields and includes a town park complete with baseball diamond, basketball court and horse shoe pits.
The town also owns and maintains a nature preserve called the Northern Pond Natural Area, located on the western side of the Dahlia Farm Road in northern Monroe about 1.3 miles from the village center (trail guide: http://landmarkheritagetrust.org/index.php/properties/). Monroe is currently experiencing a very small renaissance in terms of market farming, with North Branch Farm and Dickey Hill Farm now providing Community Sponsored Agriculture shares.
