Art After Dark Joins Culture Days Event in Kingston

Published on: 2013/09/23 - in Featured Releases

Downtown art galleries are once again putting together great exhibits of art in preparation to open their doors for Art After Dark on Friday, September 27, 2013.

This bi-annual event has been running for 5 years now and is always met with great reception by art enthusiasts in Kingston. Though the event usually occurs on a Thursday evening, the tour has been moved to a Friday night this fall in order to coincide with the national Culture Days program.

Culture Days is a “Canada-wide celebration and community expression of who we are as Canadians.” It is an annual weekend of events and anyone can host an activity as long as it meets two criteria: it has to be free and accessible to all. Since the program this year runs from September 27-29 it seemed a natural fit for Art After Dark.

Art After Dark will begin at dusk (7pm) on September 27 and continue through to 10pm. Each gallery will offer light refreshments, great conversation and of course, compelling art.

The following 15 galleries are participating in the event this fall:

Cornerstone 255 Ontario St.
Earth To Spirit 340 King St. East
Frameworks Gallery 198 Princess St.
Gallery Raymond 334 Princess St.
Get Funky Boutique 39 Montreal St.
