FLESH AND BONE

Flesh and Bone is a show of two separate, yet complimentary, bodies of work by two unique artists that viewed side by side reminds us of our own mortality and suggests that perhaps beauty is not only skin deep.

COUNTERPART

Human beings are wonderful actors.  Our masks help us get into character and we call on our counterpart as needed to act out the scene as the script requires. 

Evelyn Rapin: The Nature of Art

What I experience when I look at Evelyn Rapin’s paintings isn’t quite thought or thinking. No. Rapin’s paintings compel associations that skip like a stone across the pond of memory and insist on a response.

Artists of Note | Bruno Capolongo

Today Capolongo is perhaps best known for his classic still-life paintings featuring elegant oriental pottery, but recently he has also been painting landscapes in oils and acrylics. His patient approach to creating both still lifes and landscapes is a virtue that viewers can observe and savor.

Studio 22’s newest exhibits blend nature & music

THE HOUSE THE SPIRIT BUILDS: Coinciding with the Kingston WritersFest happening Sept. 25 to 29, Studio 22 is exhibiting a work that blends the visual and the literary arts.
THE CONCERT SERIES: Rapin’s The Concert Series was inspired by a concert she attended at The Isabel Bader Centre while sitting in the front row in 2017.

The Concert Series

Rapin’s work highlights the harmonious intersection of two art forms and encourages the
viewer to explore and celebrate the aesthetics and powerful psychology of music.

The House the Spirit Builds

The House the Spirit Builds reminds us that joy and inspiration can be found in the smallest
of things and that it is in our quest for a sense of belonging that we are united. The poems and
photographs seen together are an invitation to expand our sense of wonder and our sense that all
things are connected.

TAVVAUNA / Here It Is: Drawings from Cape Dorset

The title Tavvauna (Here it is translated from Inuktut into English) suggests the immediacy of the images and the connection between artist and subject. Each of the 4 artists has a different approach to drawing, but all of them share a sense of contentment and wonder in their relationship with their subjects.

PERSISTENT

Persistent explores women living their lives, pushing past adversity and trying times to achieve their goals during an era when women were seen first as their gender, and second as people.

Building Up and Wearing Away

by Kamille Parkinson There are some artworks that grab you immediately when you first encounter them.  There’s sometimes no rhyme or reason to it, and it might be something that is completely outside of what you think you normally like, but there it is – you’re smitten. By the same token, there is some artwork that […]

JAZZ – TEARS AND SMILES

Nenkova’s pieces do more than visually captivate the viewer; through the use of vibrant colour and brushstroke, the artist’s work succeeds in not only capturing the improvisational element unique to this music genre, but also immortalizing the soulful creativity of these larger than life legends.
