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, Portland, Maine, 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’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. The town 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 (Trail guide: http://landmarkheritagetrust.org/index.php/properties/). This is located on the western side of the Dahlia Farm Road in northern Monroe about 1.3 miles from the village center. Monroe is currently experiencing a very small renaissance in terms of market farming, with North Branch Farm (http://www.northbranchfarm-monroe.blogspot.com) and Dickey Hill Farm (http://www.dickeyhillfarm.com/) now providing Community Sponsored Agriculture shares. Kenny’s studio will be open for the Cultivate Farm and Arts Trail!
