It may be that after we have spent a century or two in expending our wealth of wood to seek the riches of other planets, we will realize that our greatest wealth was right here on earth after all.
     -Eric Sloane, A Reverence for Wood

 Ever since Freddy Brehant from Country Carpenters introduced me to the art and writings of Eric Sloane, a trip to the Eric Sloane Museum Kent has been on my list, but somehow it hasn’t happened yet.
Imagine my delight when I showed up at Bradley Airport one night recently with a couple of hours to wait for my flight because there, inside the entrance to Terminal A, were two big exhibit cases packed with antique tools from the Eric Sloane Museum, original Eric Sloane paintings and drawings, and a selection of personal items, including Eric Sloane’s typewriter with a pair of his glasses sitting on top of it. The exhibit is part of the Connecticut Gallery project by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and will be on view at Bradley through September.

Eric Sloane
In the exhibit space at Terminal A at Bradley Airport in Harford, a selection of antique tools from the Eric Sloane Museum in Kent share space with artifacts from the life of the ever-popular artist and writer, who died in 1985.
