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.
