Something artfully exciting is happening now in Downtown Kingston and we want to include you in the scoop!
My name is David Dossett. I am the owner and founder of Martello Alley Gallery and I would like to introduce you to Jardin'Art!
As artists, we love how diverse our seasons are here in Canada, and we get especially excited when the diversity turns warm and colourful! We want to celebrate the Spring and Summer seasons with another free public art event. We have gathered some wonderfully talented local artists to create colourful, uplifting images made especially for the outdoors. Our art is on antique window screens, Plexiglass and anything else that can withstand outdoor weather conditions with subjects and styles as varied as the creative minds behind them. Jardin'Art is full of surprises! (Spoiler, the art is lit up at night). The artwork is distributed to local downtown businesses and displayed on patios, in gardens and windows. A map is available with all the locations of the art for an art walking tour. You can download a copy of the map here, or come in to Martello Alley to get your copy.
The art is a great catalyst to promote beautiful downtown Kingston, its businesses, our impressive architecture and, of course, our brilliant artists. Basically, we turn the downtown into an art gallery where folks can enjoy a stroll, a great meal and drinks.
This is a great opportunity for everyone involved and we need your help to spread the word!
On behalf of the participating artists, Martello Alley and the businesses and the City of Kingston's downtown community, we thank for your support and hope that you enjoy your tour of Jardin'Art in downtown Kingston!.
