MISCELLANEA

Overall, Miscellanea is playful but sometimes dark, humorous but sometimes sad, and occasionally mysterious for no good reason at all. As always, it’s the audience who tells the stories.

2020 Visions Exhibitions Launched at Studio22 Open Gallery – by Kamille Parkinson

With a nod to the expression “20/20 vision,” Studio 22 Open Gallery on Market Square has launched a series of exhibitions for 2020 called “It’s a Vision Idiom.” . . . . The first of the series, titled “More than Meets the Eye,” has recently opened and features the work of painter Norman Takeuchi and fibre artist Phillida Hargreaves.

NEW BEGINNINGS

“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.

UNEARTHED

“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.”

FLESH AND BONE

Flesh and Bone is a show of two separate, yet complimentary, bodies of work by two unique artists that viewed side by side reminds us of our own mortality and suggests that perhaps beauty is not only skin deep.

COUNTERPART

Human beings are wonderful actors.  Our masks help us get into character and we call on our counterpart as needed to act out the scene as the script requires. 

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.

The Concert Series

Rapin’s work highlights the harmonious intersection of two art forms and encourages the
viewer to explore and celebrate the aesthetics and powerful psychology of music.

The House the Spirit Builds

The House the Spirit Builds reminds us that joy and inspiration can be found in the smallest
of things and that it is in our quest for a sense of belonging that we are united. The poems and
photographs seen together are an invitation to expand our sense of wonder and our sense that all
things are connected.

PERSISTENT

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.
