To Our Valued Customers:

We are back with APPOINTMENT ONLY gallery hours.

It is with an abundance of caution that we have decided not to resume Walk-In gallery hours at this time.  Over the course of the past year, our online sales have been strong and have continued to grow.  We expect the bulk of our sales during the remainder of the pandemic to be initiated through online viewing and completed through shipping, local pick-up and appointment visits.  We, therefore, would prefer to minimize our personal interactions to what is essential for the purpose of selling our art.

For those who enjoy the act of communing with beautiful, stimulating art but do not consider themselves buyers or see themselves buying art at another time, we hope to welcome you back with open arms in the near future.  In the interim, we invite you to browse and enjoy our virtual gallery at your leisure. 

For those who are looking to purchase art, please browse our website.  To go directly to available artwork, see our GALLERY SHOP or ARTIST pages.  We can reserve a work of art until an in-person viewing appointment can be scheduled. 

If you are not a regular subscriber, we welcome you to keep an eye on this Homepage for new features and specials.  If you prefer a prompt to see what’s on offer, subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of the page and we will keep you posted.

In the Open Gallery

Our Winter Artist Portfolio Series shows the most recent works by our regular artists. This grouping will be regularly updated to include the most recent additions to the gallery collection throughout the winter of 2020/21.
There are people in these paintings, but they’re not portraits. They’re about communing with nature, sun warming our shoulders, wind ruffling our hair, grass cool and damp under our bare feet.
These paintings and drawings delight in conversations and celebrations. The cakes are inspired by vintage images from Betty Crocker’s New Picture Cookbook from the 60’s given to my mother when she was married. . . . The smaller pastels are about conversations where the objects take the place of people. Larger pieces are a closed circuit of communication, dialogues or soliloquies or larger conversations about more formal elements of a painting.

Featured Artists

Bruno Capolongo

Bruno Capolongo is an established artist of Neapolitan descent whose work is collected by private and corporate collectors in addition to a growing list of public galleries and museums.

Keight MacLean

Keight MacLean is a Toronto based painter, originally from the Kingston region, an alumna of OCAD University and the school's prestigious Florence Program. Intrigued by our connection to the distant past and the historical treatment of women, MacLean’s work combines elements of Baroque and Renaissance painting with modern and experimental techniques.

Norman Takeuchi

Some years ago, as a way of coming to terms with my ethnicity, I began integrating into my predominantly abstract paintings images from traditional Japanese woodblock prints to illustrate the concept of duality - of being Japanese and Canadian.

Erika Olson

Kingston artist, Erika Olson paints images, usually in oil, with saturated colour relationships and intuitive compositions. Inspired by both still life and emotional content, oftentimes impressionistic, other times fully abstracted. The resulting compositions are simplified and playful.
