In the Open Gallery

A summer display of the newest work by our artists.
"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.
"Rocks are the exposed bones of the earth. Their size, solidity and longevity appeal to me, and the forces that form and sculpt them intrigue me."

Featured Artists

Teri Wing

I believe my interest in people started at a very young age, when I was told to sit still and quiet, which was usually at church or a waiting room. I would be handed a pen and old grocery list or envelope from Mums bag, I would draw other people also waiting.

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.

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.

Traditional subject matter, contemporary point of view

What does it mean to have a strong personalized vision in the face of decades of stylistic traditions and particular expectations about cultural art production?

Building up and wearing away

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 you don’t think much of, at first glance anyway. But your eyes keep sliding back to it, again and again, though you’re not sure why. Intrigued, you return to the artwork to look at it more closely, to pay attention to it. These are the types of paintings (or other art objects) that you have to spend time with to fully appreciate, and they are often also the ones that are most worth the effort.
