Kingston's newest gallery, the West Strand Gallery, which opened in May, features the exhibition “Intersecting Art, Earth, Fire, Water & Air.”

Gallery co-founders Isabel and Julio Nazario commented: “We’ve had four exhibitions featuring 24 artists of diverse backgrounds. The aim of the gallery is to foster opportunity for diverse underrepresented artists whose work is not well-known to be exhibited along with mid-career and established artists.”

The Nazarios are artists who decided to relocate to Kingston more than five years ago after visiting for years. They commented: “Since the mid-80s we have been visiting Kingston and surrounding communities. Over the years we grew closer to the growing diverse community of artists and felt anchored in Kingston, a place where we could create our own artwork.”
