Shout Out for Kingston Art

The Ottawa Citizen wrote a great article about spending a day exploring Kingston's diverse art scene, article highlights include:

"We hit the jackpot at Sydenham Street Studios (178 Sydenham), a collective where each of seven artists has a wee studio around a common display space. We chatted with two long-standing members. Gillian Little takes photographs of both nature (turkey feathers, milkweed pods) and engineering marvels (Avro jet engines, boat propellers). And Deborah Brown, who studied fibre arts at Concordia University, now paints. Some of her canvases are colourfully impressionistic; others are finely-honed geometric designs."

"Kingston Glass Studio, where we watched glass-maker Mariel Waddell create some of the intricate pieces, both decorative and functional, on sale there. And at ZEALmetal (190 Sydenham), jeweller Nicole Horlor crafts stunning work in platinum, 18 Karat gold and stainless steel. Her jewelry is modern and clean with “a bit of Zenness,” as she puts it."
