Every year since we opened our store in 2015 we have issued a beautiful collectable coin. The obverse of each coin indicates the year of issue, and features our crest and our motto "La créativité demande du courage" (Creativity takes courage), a quote by Henri Matisse. The reverse details the value "vingt dollars" (twenty dollars), our Website address and a unique design.
Martello Alley is a French-themed art gallery in downtown Kingston and it is open year-round. When you visit you will find an outdoor art alley, a beautiful courtyard and an interior gallery space. It is the only art alley in Ontario and features local art, gifts, furniture and decor lovingly created by local artists and crafters.
Martello on Brock is housed in a charming and historic Dickensian-styled building in downtown Kingston, just a block and a half (a five minute walk) from Martello Alley. Both galleries feature local art, gifts, furniture and decor lovingly created by local artists and crafters.
Our coins are good as legal tender at face value at Martello Alley and Martello on Brock. And with this collection you also get a locally crafted plaque to keep your coins included free - a $40 value!
