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

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.

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.

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.

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.
