Featured Artist: Sarah Hale - Arden Batik
Featured Musician: Lynn Ede

Sarah Hale - Arden Batik is a very ancient form of fabric decoration, originating in the Far East, where it is used for making both clothing and wall hangings. It is a "wax resist" process; the designs are created with alternative applications of hot wax and dye. Sarah Hale's original batiks are drawn freehand with melted wax on cotton, silk, hemp or wool fabric.  Sarah is one of the few North American artists specializing in batik as a landscape medium, and has found the process uniquely suited to capturing the colours and textures of the Canadian Shield.

Studio 22 is thrilled to welcome Keight MacLean home and to present Lost Portraits, her first major solo exhibition in Kingston. Lost Portraits, her latest body of work, features MacLean’s traditionally inspired portraits, presented with a contemporary twist, such as fluorescent spray paint, re-harvested artists’ mediums and destructive techniques. Her paintings have been exhibited internationally and her work is in collections throughout Canada, the USA, Italy and the UK. Lost Portraits will be on display at Studio 22 from September 12-October 28, 2017.  

Yes, you can get ‘There’ from here!  ‘There,’ new works by Beverly Zawitkoski will carry you away. The solo exhibition, on display at Studio 22 Open Gallery, highlights the creative practice of self-expression through paint. Zawitoski takes her inspiration from landscapes, though her abstract canvases bring the viewer on an impassioned journey, which travels far beyond the physical realm. Beverly Zawitkoski is a Canadian artist living and working in her native Montreal. Zawitkoski has exhibited in many solo and group shows in Canada and internationally in the USA, across the UK, and in The Czech Republic’s capital of Prague. ‘There’ will be on display at Studio 22 from September 12-October 28, 2017.

Featured Artist: Lorraine Seguin, local Kingston Artist.
Her work can be seen at

Local Kingston Artist Lorraine Séguin began painting at a young age, with her family's support she has continued to paint throughout the years. Although primarily a self-taught artist, while studying Art History and Psychology at Queen's University 2001-2006, she took advantage of the spring summer art courses and was glad to add the printmaking medium to her repertoire. Lorraine first started painting in oil but currently works in water-colour, acrylic, oil and printmaking. Her paintings are often described as vibrant, colourful, and energetic. Recurring themes in Lorraine‘s paintings are trees and water, her inspiration is drawn from Kingston’s landscapes as well as other vistas from past travels. Lorraine’s work is variable as she loves to challenge herself by experimenting with different media, subject matter, and styles but she often returns to her love of landscape painting.
