2. Kent Island Federation of Art


The house was built ca. 1900 for Dr. William L. Henry, his wife and their two sons. The entrance to his office can be seen from the enclosed front porch. Subsequent owners were B. Harrison Bright, J. Fred Stevens, Charles Bright, Elizabeth Bright and C.G. Dunn. Currently home of the Kent Island Federation of Art.

In 1985, KIFA purchased the lovely Victorian style house and became a landmark in Historic Stevensville. By 1995, with 140 members, KIFA was mounting eleven art exhibits a year with emphasis on art education and service to Queen Anne's County. With a membership today of over 200 artists, artisans, craftspersons, and others who love and support the visual arts, KIFA continues to be a staple of the artistic and historic community.

KIFA’s main mission is to provide an opportunity for people of all ages to better appreciate the visual arts and to develop their own creative and artistic skills. They host exhibits as well as hold classes, member events, fun fundraisers, and summer art camps for children. They pride themselves on friendliness and inclusiveness.

Office & Gallery Hours:

As KIFA is staffed by volunteers, it is always best to call ahead to ensure we are open.
