The City of Kingston has temporarily closed all of Kingston Arts’ venues. We are doing this to try to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus within the community and to comply with Government requirements. Our gallery and workshop programs are also impacted with 'Metamorphoses' opening and exhibition cancelled.
We thank you for your understanding during these very difficult times. We look forward to welcoming you back to Kingston Arts Centre and its spaces soon.
