Featured Artists

Evelyn Rapin

Making the invisible visible is central to my music inspired works, and the writings of these experts have supplied infinite inspiration.

Lee Stewart

Kingston-based artist, Lee Stewart was born and raised in Kashechewan, a small remote reserve on James Bay, Northern Ontario, spent years in the Rideau Lakes region, and studied art history at Carleton. Stewart’s cultural influences are as vast as his experience, without hierarchy or elevated status. As a self-taught artist, Stewart’s experimentation, innate curiosity, and openness continue to shape his evolving style.

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.
