The recycled cans, rusted and corroded through patinas, lend themselves to an implied critique of our current environmental practices, a reminder that two thirds of the original wetlands have been lost.
We will be previewing our May 30th exhibits at this year’s spring Art After Dark gallery tour. Come get a peek of some really exciting new works. Have time to ponder and make your move before these works go on sale on Tuesday May 30th.
We are in the final few days of our current exhibit period. Our featured exhibits, A Perfect Day - New Oils by Susan Oomen, Paintings by Robert Blenderman and Rebecca Cowan's Julie Brown Project, have been accompanied by some terrific new work by Teresa Mrozicka,...
I was inspired by the celebrity portraits by Andy Warhol, whose iconic images use repetition and colour variation to highlight different aspects of his very familiar subjects.
The works suggest moments of solitude as well as intimate pairings, illustrations of what it means to be close to nature and to one another.
Blenderman’s tireless imagination is hardly exhausted by local streetscapes and landscapes. Realistic, classically styled still lives and wildly expressive abstracts have also been the subject of his attention over the years.
I wanted to rid myself of the feeling which I had experienced that art has nothing to do with reality and is not sturdy enough to help us live up to it.Irwin Piscator
Established in 2006, Studio 22 is a creative enterprise located in the heart of Kingston’s historic Market Square. Our business has two aspects: The Open Gallery and the Idea Manufactory.
Studio 22’s Open Gallery began as an open concept space; a space suited to artistic exploration and flexible design. Over the years that space has evolved into an entire building devoted to contemporary Canadian Art and Artists, a vast collection of original works for rent or purchase, and more than a dozen new solo exhibitions annually. With over 40 artists working in a variety of mediums, from photography, graphics, oils and acrylics to bronze, stone, and steel sculpture, we showcase a diverse range of artists living and working within the local Kingston region and across the country.
The Idea Manufactory is a broad based graphic design studio and micro- publisher. Our services include: print and digital – books, broadsides, posters, and catalogues.
