Paint Stevensville 2020 

At this time, we are  postponing the Big Band Dance until August. As there are simply many unknown factors of potential infection and cases of the virus, we are taking cues from pertinent information and actions of like organizations to be in keeping with safety precautions. We wish our members and supporters well at this time.

Greetings from KIFA

We are hoping all of you are finding ways to occupy 

yourselves, as we are all confined mostly to our homes.

We are all in this together and are praying for this to be over soon.

Updated Notice Concerning KIFA's Activities

The Kent Island Federation of Arts building remains closed and will remain that way through at least April. 

The Yarn Bombing should be installed on KIFA's Grounds by April 1st. We hope to bring some color and a little joy back to the Community. Pictures will be posted on the website.

The QAC Schools Art Exhibit will remain hanging probably through most of May. We hope that the families and  students will be able to view the work in the gallery before it comes down. Still working on putting the videos up on the website.

The 57th Annual Open Judged Art Show has been moved to the month of June. Both the Propectus' for the "5th Paint Stevensville" Event and Annual Art Show will be on the website. The entry fees can be paid at the time of registration or when the work is brought in for the Art Show, in case we have to push the dates forward again. 

• Scheduling classes and Drum Circle have been put on hold for now.

• Keep Creating, whether it is gardening or just cooking good meals and visit some of the Virtual exhibits that Maryland Federation of Art, Art League of Ocean City, Chestertown Riverarts have been posting.

Please enjoy the slide show/video "KIFA FUN" below from one of our Members, Photographer Julie Schaeffer.
