KENT—The Good Gallery will have a gala weekend on Oct. 21 and 22 as it opens a new exhibition by Robert Lenz on Saturday, followed by a concert by The Old Guitarist on Sunday. The Lenz exhibition opens with a reception from 3 to 7 p.m. The opening was originally planned for Oct. 14, but was delayed due to Covid.
Lenz, a former creative art director, returned to his first love, drawing and painting, after a decades-long career in the advertising business. Of his work he says, “having resisted the Abstraction Expressionist Movement, the Pop Art movement, and today’s Avant-garde experiments, I have remained a traditional, representational painter, with a style of my own.”
On Sunday, the gallery will present live music by The Old Guitarist, starting at 3 p.m.
The anonymous “Old Guitarist” received his Master of Music degree from Yale University, where he studied with Eliot Fisk, Andres Segovia’s last student, as well as Peter Oiujian, first violinist with the Tokyo String Quartet, and Phyliss Curtain, head of the Tanglewood vocal department. He has performed as a chamber musician and soloist throughout the United States and Europe.
The Old Guitarist will joined for the afternoon by the singer-songwriter, Cinnamon. The fee is $25 at the door or purchase tickets online here.
All profits help support The Village Music School Foundation, which provides musical instruction to children around the country who might not otherwise be able to afford it.
After the performance there will be a cheese and wine reception in the gallery, 23 South Main St.
