 The Kent Island Federation of Arts is partially funded by the Queen Anne's County Government, Mid-Shore Community Foundation, Queen Anne's County Arts Council, United Way of Queen Anne's County, and Maryland State Arts Council, as well as KIFA membership. 

Welcoming time and space to be creative……

Celebrate the Year of the Woman!

Written Submissions Due May 29

This period is a spectacular opportunity to create an art piece
proclaiming connections to Women Artists …
on a banner to feature 20 artists’ works in recognition of
female artists who have influenced and encouraged so many.

Let this not only be a creative endeavor, but an educational one as well!  There are many interesting women throughout history to become acquainted with and gain a deeper insight into their lives!

Now, it is only necessary to submit a written narrative of your female artist's inspiration and influence.

The new date for the final artwork and entry fee will be June 15th.

Full details are included in the prospectus….

Please join us for this inspiring project!

Greetings from KIFA

We are now open Wed. through Sat.
1:00 to 4:00 pm

(As well as additional hours for special events, such as receptions.)

Guidelines are posted at KIFA to protect both Patrons, Visitors and Members. KIFA will be following the advice of Health officials and the Governor, of first wearing of face masks inside our building, as well as keeping social distances of 6  feet apart, and the use of sanitizer before touching anything in the gift shop, as well as using disposable gloves when handling the artwork. We would be only allowing 10 people at a time in the building to allow for safe social distancing. We will be holding receptions, and other events outside as much as possible.

Stay safe, continue to be creative, and hopefully we will see you soon.
