A previous version of this article referred to the newspaper published by The Town Paper as The Town Crier, which is the HOA published newspaper for the Kentlands.

Kentlands Photography Café Opening December 14

The Kentlands Photography Cafe will be open for retail business starting Tuesday December 14. This new venue will serve as a photography gallery, cafe, photography bookstore, wine bar, as well as a space for classes and lectures. The cafe and wine bar will start operating at a later date, which has not yet been announced. 

Per their website, the gallery will be the focal point of the space. They will display a permanent collection of work, plus new photography exhibitions every 6-8 weeks with art from local, national, and international photographers. They plan to host events including opportunities to meet the artists, workshops, book signings, and more. 

The cafe will serve ready-made sandwiches and salads from local chefs, plus house-brewed coffee and wine curated by a local sommelier. They plan to host pop up dinner nights featuring local chefs in addition to wine tasting events. 

The bookstore will offer photography tutorial books, “coffee table” photography books, photography prints, posters, reproductions, and photography magazines. 

The Kentlands Photography Cafe is located at 309 Main St in Gaithersburg and is replacing the Wellspring Skin Care Clinic.  

While they were remodeling, the owner discovered the original signage for the office that used to occupy that space– the Town Paper (publisher of The Town Courier from 2003-2020).

Very excited about the opening of the Kentlands Photography Cafe. As the previous owner of The Town Paper, I would just like to make a correction. The Town Paper published The Town Courier and various publications related to the new urbanism. It did not publish The Town Crier, which is a HOA published newspaper for Kentlands. Maybe a correction can be added to the article.
