Sketches of Martello Alley ~ Spring & Jardin'Art

โ€œShe turned to the sunlight

ย ย ย ย And shook her yellow head,

And whispered to her neighbor:

ย ย ย ย "Winter is dead.โ€ย

This may seem harsh, unless you're a Canadian. And if we're being completely honest, winter doesn't go down without a fight! So, when the season finally holds its breath for the next 5 or 6 months, we just want to celebrate!ย 

It's the perfect time to get outside; take in the fresh air and sunshine. Just feel that vitamin D boost! Why, we may even think about applying sunscreen. Everything seems so new and alive; and that's where Martello Alley comes in.ย 

Jardin'Art is returning this year! It is our celebration of all things Spring through a public art exhibit in downtown Kingston.

Jardin'Art is art created to be left outdoors; perfect for the garden! Or the patios of downtown merchants where you will find many of the works displayed. Patio & Art & Garden, what a great combination!ย 

We have sought the talents of amazing local artists to present a diverse collection of art! Art work on antique window screens or Plexiglas, with subjects and styles as varied as the creative minds behind them; Jardin'Art is sure to be full of surprises! (Spoiler, the art is lit up at night)

We hope you can plan a night out with friends or family (or both!) and come Downtown. See some amazing art for free while you have a nice dinner or coffee or drinks; take a stroll in the warmer weather; discover a new neighbourhood and some of the most impressive architecture!
