Sketches of Martello Alley ~ Spring & Jardin'Art
“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
"Winter is dead.”
― A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young
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!
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.
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!
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!
