Stark + Kent Gallery
Palm Springs, CA 92662
Stark + Kent is a contemporary art gallery established in May of 2012 by Ross and Mike, old friends who love art and artists. Initially meeting when Ross was a talent agent and Mike was beginning his acting career, they started a successful partnership in the film and television industry. Stark + Kent is the culmination of what both men feel is a lifelong passion for creativity, artistic expression and a desire to support artists so they can continue to pursue their artistic endeavors. For visitors to the gallery, Ross and Mike have created a place in which everyone - from the established art collector to those with limited exposure to the arts - can find something that stimulates and intrigues them. They've carefully and with great intention selected artists whose work they feel is original, rings of authenticity and has a strong presence. The pieces have been chosen to work together as a whole and to create a balanced and cohesive space. Something transcendent happens when someone connects with a piece of art. Whether it be a painiting, a sculpture, a piece of music, a performance - it changes them. The hope at Stark + Kent is that visitors experience that connection. And in turn, the artists will be inspired to continue bringing to life all that is inside. Because the worlds needs them to. The world needs art.
