In an interview with The Journal, Olson and Krakow discussed their painting careers and creative processes.
These paintings and drawings delight in conversations and celebrations. The cakes are inspired by vintage images from Betty Crocker’s New Picture Cookbook from the 60’s given to my mother when she was married. . . . The smaller pastels are about conversations where the objects take the place of people. Larger pieces are a closed circuit of communication, dialogues or soliloquies or larger conversations about more formal elements of a painting.
A summer display of the newest work by our artists.

You will find work created by artists inspired by Kingston’s incredible community and Canada’s stunning landscapes.
