Take a tour of downtown Kingston and Barriefield and enjoy some great art while you’re at it. This weekend is Kingston’s 16th annual Spring Studio Tour. On May 3 and 4 from 10am-5pm you can stop by the many homes on the list to check out the work of some wonderful local artists.
The tour presents a diverse mix of professional handcrafted artwork including pottery, fibre art, jewellery, photography, clothing, furniture and more. Some featured artists include Sue Lyon, Arlene Cassidy, M. Bernadette Pratt, JT Winik, Andrea Graham and Adam Kropinski.
You can walk between a lot of the studios but a car or bike might be helpful too. Either way, take a rest between studios at Sydenham United Church where they will be holding their Springtime Salon from noon-5pm on Saturday and noon-3pm on Sunday. The Salon will display more artwork (some of which will be for sale) and provide live music while you enjoy delicious baked goods and other refreshments. Admission is free.
You can pick up a map of the tour at various art related businesses downtown or call 613-634-8800. They have a website too: www.kingstonartists.com
