Florence Brevoort Kane was a Narragansett summer resident, born into New York’s “aristocracy,” and who won acclaim as a sculptor in the Roaring 20’s of Paris- an exceptional accomplishment for a young, deaf, American woman. We will honor her life and work on Sunday November 5th, 2 pm, at St. Peter’s by-the-Sea.
Miss Kane’s most well-known work is the bust of President Eisenhower, which was donated to the Smithsonian Institute.  Other works of her art were willed to the Providence Art Club, and some will be on display at this event.  Additionally, some of her art works are located in Narragansett.

This event was organized by Judy Landry, Narragansett Historical Society board member and member of St. Peter’s Historical Committee.  The free lecture will be followed by an afternoon tea at 3:00 pm, which is a fund-raiser for St. Peter’s Historical Committee.   Tickets for the tea are $20 and are going fast.  Please contact St. Peter’s  at 783-4623 if you want to attend the tea.
