Upcoming . . .

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.

Shop Talk with Neli Nenkova

ShopTalk with Neli Nenkova will explore the background and inspiration for her latest exhibit, Jazz- Tears and Smiles, a series of bold new paintings of some of the greatest Jazz musicians of all time.

JAZZ – Poster Art Series

The posters are designed by Hersh Jacob and produced by Studio22’s Idea Manufactory. Each poster is 3 feet by 2 feet in size and digitally printed on medium weight paper. They are light enough to be pinned to a wall and fine enough to be plaque mounted or framed.

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.

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 2003, 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 a series of 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.
