A large-scale solo exhibition of David Klein's striking 1960s vintage lithographed travel posters for TWA titled "Up, Up, and away!" is being mounted at Scott & Bowne from September 17, 2011 to October 16, 2011.  There will be an opening reception on September 17, 2011 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

From the gallery's website:
"Scott & Bowne is delighted to present a large-scale solo exhibition of thirty vintage travel posters - lithographs by illustrator and noted award winning Kent Art Association member David Klein (1918-2005). [...] The show features a collection of posters from the artist’s own private collection, several of them signed by the artist and all will include estate certification. During the 1950s and 1960s David Klein designed and illustrated dozens of these iconic Jet Age posters for Howard Hughes’ Trans World Airlines (TWA)."

The work of David Klein has gained recent popularity due in part to the style of AMC's hit television series Mad Men. They capture iconically a more colorful time when traveling was still glamorous, and illustrators were still respected.

Scott & Bowne is located at 27 North Main St. #1, Kent, CT.
