The #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.
This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:
Take the Commuter Challenge. A few weeks ago we published our Guide to Art Galleries in Kingston, which highlighted the vast number of galleries located in our downtown. While we do often visit galleries when we travel to other cities, we don’t always make a point of doing so in our own town. This week, we challenge you to head out into the spring air (don’t worry, tomorrow’s snowfall won’t last!) and do a mini-tour of some of the galleries located in downtown Kingston. There are many exhibits to enjoy, including Studio 22’s I Love This Piece or A Perfect Day, Modern Fuel’s Common Names, or check out regularly featured works at Martello Alley, The Agnes Etherington Art Centre or Cornerstone Canadian Art and Craft. With creations extending from paintings, photography and sculpture to woodworking, glass and pottery, you will be astonished to see the incredible works of art created by Canadians and our own Kingstonians. So, get out there, and tell us which gallery is your favourite to visit.
