We are honored to announce for the first time ever, Brent Stapelkamp, world renowned conservationist and fine art photographer of Cecil the Lion, will jury a fine art show with selected entries, alongside over 25 of his photos, as seen in National Geographic, CNN, BBC and more. Brent will give a lecture in Ivoryton CT, at the Ivoryton Congregational Church, followed by a wine and cheese reception and art show with Brent's original photographs, and selected others, at Six Summit Gallery.

Six Summit Gallery of Ivoryton, CT (home to 90% of all manufacturing of ivory at the turn of the century) continues its anti-poaching, pro-wildlife campaign through fine art. Brent was the last person to photo and collar the beloved lion in
Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park.

Brent Stapelkamp is a 38 year old Zimbabwean who has devoted his life and passion to the conservation of lions and the communities that live along side them. Brent worked on the WildCRU's Hwange Lion Research project for close to a decade where his primary roles were the mitigating of conflict between lions and livestock as well as tracking, collaring and studying Hwange's lions. Brent was the last person to touch Cecil the lion alive when he caught him for a collar change and is said to have been the last person to take photographs of Cecil before his death. Several of those "last photos" are within this collection. Brent now live off-grid with his young family and they now concentrate on projects that both uplift people and conserve wildlife on Hwange's boundaries.

This 19 sculpture series is meant to take the ‘art worldlings’ to task for their irresponsible behavior. It is to visualize the stupidity and lack of responsibility in the current art world that is foisting mediocre ‘shtick’ upon the public and calling it art - the hype being more important than the work being lauded.
There is a specific reason for each artist chosen as a meal by the Slavic witch-hut, her eminence in wisdom-
The Baba Yaga.

An Homage to Mediocrity and Hype

Baba Yag Eats:

Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Yves Klein, Robert Gober,
Maurizio Cattelan, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Claes Oldenberg, Rothko, Wolfgang Laib, Edvard Munch, James Turrell, Richard Serra, Fernando Botero, Christo, John Chamberlain, Andres Serrano with
Baba Yaga and Baba Yaga's Day Off.

Ongoing Residency
William Kent (1919-2012)
In this tempestuous election year and explosive political season we offer a journey back into the sixties with world renowned printmaker, sculptor, and satirist- William Kent.
Psychedelic chameleons, alluring insects and bold political prints take us back to a time when things were..... pretty much the same!
We ask you to “End Your Silence”  “Abolish HUAC” and “Take It Easy but Take It” in this second installment of our retrospective on the elusive Connecticut artist.    The hand made prints were created by carving huge Italian slate blackboards, and reproducing on fabric and rice paper- without a printing press.
Kent, who many consider one of America’s greatest printmakers and sculptors, lived as a recluse. His work was included alongside such titans as Jasper Johns, Robert Motherwell, and Phillip Guston. He attended Yale University, was the first curator of the John Slade Ely House, and exhibited at some the
finest museums and galleries including-
The Wadsworth Atheneum, Sundsvall Sweden, Colgate, Brooklyn Museum,
Whitney Museum of American Art, 
New Britain Museum of American Art and more. His work is in the collections of Smithsonian, Brooklyn Museum, Princeton University,
New Britain Museum of American Art, Lyman Allen Art Museum, Yale University Art Gallery, Florence Griswold and many more.
Private viewings and receptions available. Hours subject to change

Ivoryton is one of three villages in Essex, Connecticut in Middlesex County. Ivoryton Historic District, the historic district in the village, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 15, 2014

Ivoryton has the dubious distinction of having a virtual monopoly on all ivory production in the United States from 1860-1938. As the manufacturing of ivory is long gone, the town would like to take a large role, and use this event as a catalyst in the anti ivory, anti poaching effort.


                                               NEW YORK/CONNECTICUT

   Curated by Leo Feroleto to raise awareness for anti-ivory, anti-poaching, in 2  locations of Faust Pianos, in Manhattan and Fairfield CT.
    Six Summit Gallery, New England’s leading diverse art gallery of Ivoryton, CT, and Faust Harrison Pianos, one of America’s largest independent retailers of vintage Steinway pianos, are proud to announce that we are hosting  art shows at the extraordinary showrooms of Faust Harrison Pianos. The shows will be done in cooperation with a major wildlife non profit to promote awareness about, and raise funds to combat the horrific elephant and rhino poaching crisis, and send a clear anti ivory message.   Ivoryton was home to nearly all ivory manufacturing at the turn of the century.
