Downtown Gallery Hop - March 3rd
The Downtown Gallery Hop is back for 2023! Join us for the hop this Friday, March 3rd from 6-9PM where we will be staying open late at the WKP Kennedy Gallery along with many other wonderful downtown businesses for you to visit.
Make sure that our gallery is one of the first stops on your map, as we will be handing out Swag Bags to the first 50 visitors! We will have three shows on view for you this evening with such an amazing variety of artwork.
The 'Winter Wonderland' Pop-up show sits within the Capitol Centre lobby and front window space of the gallery, where local artists have submitted work that interprets the theme of walking in a 'Winter Wonderland.' This evening will be your last chance to see these enchanting landscapes!
In Gallery I, the Nipissing University Fine Arts Juried Exhibition is on view. With a variety of original artwork selected by the guest juror and prolific local painter, Colin Davis, the exhibition showcases a new generation of emerging artists amidst their academic journey. This will also be the last evening of this annual show!
In Gallery II, Carnaval des Compagnons takes over the large gallery space.Every year, Les Compagnons organizes and curates a collection of artwork from local Francophone artists to be displayed within the large gallery. It is always a spectacular addition of French art and culture amongst the winter festivities! With this years theme, "My art, my vision: Between past and present" The concept consists in emphasizing a work of art from the past and another from the present, to illustrate the artist's evolution, progress, and artistic vision; in the same way the Carnival has evolved over the past 60 years.
There is so much to see at the gallery this for this seasons gallery hop. We hope to see you as you explore all of the rest that downtown has to offer!
