Kingston Road will be a bit more colourful than usual during the annual Kingston Road Village Artwalk, brightening up the street with a one-day celebration of art in all its forms.
On Saturday, June 4, businesses and local organizations will offer wall and display space to artists to show their work. The hosts take no commission and charge no fee, so it’s a great chance for buyers to directly support local artists, and for browsers to share compliments face-to-face.
The juried artists run the gamut from painting to photography, in a diverse array of styles. Just a few of the artists include printmaker Tyler Baylis, painters Benny Alaga, Glenn Honiball and Vivian Wong, and mixed media artist Hunter Lewis Lake, who creates art from the grills of old air conditioners.
From west to east, make sure to stop in and check out the art at The Grover Pub, Cobalt Gallery, Beaches Bakeshop, Yellow House Gallery, The Sweetest Things, Advanced Approaches to Massage, Pegasus, Close to the Bone, Active Healing Centre, ScotiaBank, Great Escape Bookstore Annex (the garage behind the shop), Savoury Grounds (on Scarborough Road), Mad Hus Café, Kingston Road United Church, No Bull Burgers, Ella Minnow Children’s Bookstore, Collected Joy, and Royal LePage Estate Realty.
The Kingston Road Village Artwalk will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. along Kingston Road, from Main Street to Henley Gardens.
