Art Talk At The Museum

Join us for an inspiring night at Museum of Lennox & Addington with local artists and active members of the Greater Napanee & Area Arts Association: Gary Barnett and Joanne Kells, as we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the GNAAA!
Tuesday, May 21st, 2024.
Time: 7PM (doors open at 6:30PM)
Cost: $3/person

Joanne, who always aspired to be a professional artist, found her confidence when she moved to Napanee, speaking her dream out loud. Taking courses and seeking mentorship, she honed her skills and gained confidence.

Gary Barnett, a graphic designer since the mid-1970s, ventured into abstract painting in the early 1980s. Drawing inspiration from contemporary art, he developed a unique abstract style rooted in chemistry and energy.
