May 10: The Beaches + Taylor Knox at The Mansion

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party.  However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.  Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance. Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. Collectively best friends, each individual brings something unique to the table, yielding songs that was the fine line between a heavy-hitting gut punch and a hell of a lot of fun. In fact, according to Leandra, they sometimes have too much fun writing: “Jordan and I will sometimes get into our own zone and write our Dracula rock opera,” she says, totally serious. “The others have to get us back to working on the sound.” Being an all-female group certainly sets them apart from the male-dominated rock world, but there’s a collective eye roll at the suggestion of being called a “girl group.” “It’s one of those things where you wish you didn’t have to mention it,” says Eliza, sighing. “It makes us unique, yeah, but we shouldn’t have to define ourselves as a female rock band. We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389

A Gift From Martadella

06:00 PM — 08:00 PM

A new musical play for anyone who believes they have more to give In celebration of H'art Centre's 20th anniversary! Produced by H’art Centre Script and Music By H’art participants, Kathi Toth-Switzer, David Archibald Directed by Kathryn MacKay Music Direction by David Archibald, Kathi Toth-Switzer Performed by H’art participants and local performers Twenty years ago, we met Martadella, in H’art’s first theatre production entitled “Martadella’s Gift”, a young girl who communicated in a special way using a magical bubble wand.  Martadella challenged and inspired others to look beyond appearances and search for the beauty and unique gifts of those who appear different. In H’art’s new musical, we meet Sam and Marta, a couple who had been inspired by Martadella’s Gift years ago as high school students after starring in the production.  Ironically, they have a daughter, Stella, who, like Martadella, cannot speak.   Sam and Marta have spent 20 years working hard to create a safe and comfortable life for their daughter.  Marta feels that she understands and knows what’s best for Stella. But can Stella be satisfied with comfortable when she has so much more to give? Over 40 remarkable local performers, most with developmental disabilities, used their talents as actors, musicians and visual artists to create this spirited celebratory performance. A Gift from Martadella is a story about a young woman who embarks on a journey of new personal discoveries drawing inspiration from that same magical bubble wand from years ago. Learn more about H'art Centre, a non-profit, charitable organization that ensures people with disabilities or  who face barriers have opportunities to create, study and produce works in the arts.

May 10: The Beaches + Taylor Knox at The Mansion

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party.  However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.  Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance. Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. Collectively best friends, each individual brings something unique to the table, yielding songs that was the fine line between a heavy-hitting gut punch and a hell of a lot of fun. In fact, according to Leandra, they sometimes have too much fun writing: “Jordan and I will sometimes get into our own zone and write our Dracula rock opera,” she says, totally serious. “The others have to get us back to working on the sound.” Being an all-female group certainly sets them apart from the male-dominated rock world, but there’s a collective eye roll at the suggestion of being called a “girl group.” “It’s one of those things where you wish you didn’t have to mention it,” says Eliza, sighing. “It makes us unique, yeah, but we shouldn’t have to define ourselves as a female rock band. We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition.

May 10: The Beaches + Taylor Knox at The Mansion

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party.  However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.  Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance. Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. Collectively best friends, each individual brings something unique to the table, yielding songs that was the fine line between a heavy-hitting gut punch and a hell of a lot of fun. In fact, according to Leandra, they sometimes have too much fun writing: “Jordan and I will sometimes get into our own zone and write our Dracula rock opera,” she says, totally serious. “The others have to get us back to working on the sound.” Being an all-female group certainly sets them apart from the male-dominated rock world, but there’s a collective eye roll at the suggestion of being called a “girl group.” “It’s one of those things where you wish you didn’t have to mention it,” says Eliza, sighing. “It makes us unique, yeah, but we shouldn’t have to define ourselves as a female rock band. We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

DIRECTED BY DAN NIZNIK: A charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years; he makes a presumed deaf and dumb man talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. This is one you have to see!

After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389

Domino Theatre presents: One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Dale Wasserman

07:30 PM — 10:00 PM

DIRECTED BY DAN NIZNIK: A charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years; he makes a presumed deaf and dumb man talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. This is one you have to see! Start time: 7:30 p.m.   Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights                              DOMINO THEATRE        52 CHURCH STREET        KINGSTON, ONT.        K7M 1H3   Tickets available at: The Grand Theatre box office  613-530-2050 Online at: www.kingstongrand.ca   Or: At the Domino Theatre door for:  a) the night of the performance if tickets available  b) Cash, credit and debit now accepted at the Domino Theatre door. d) Seniors and members $16 Thursdays only at the Domino Theatre door.   Adults: $20    Students: $10    Children: $10

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389

May 10: The Beaches + Taylor Knox at The Mansion

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party.  However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.  Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance. Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. Collectively best friends, each individual brings something unique to the table, yielding songs that was the fine line between a heavy-hitting gut punch and a hell of a lot of fun. In fact, according to Leandra, they sometimes have too much fun writing: “Jordan and I will sometimes get into our own zone and write our Dracula rock opera,” she says, totally serious. “The others have to get us back to working on the sound.” Being an all-female group certainly sets them apart from the male-dominated rock world, but there’s a collective eye roll at the suggestion of being called a “girl group.” “It’s one of those things where you wish you didn’t have to mention it,” says Eliza, sighing. “It makes us unique, yeah, but we shouldn’t have to define ourselves as a female rock band. We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

May 10: The Beaches + Taylor Knox at The Mansion

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party.  However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.  Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance. Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. Collectively best friends, each individual brings something unique to the table, yielding songs that was the fine line between a heavy-hitting gut punch and a hell of a lot of fun. In fact, according to Leandra, they sometimes have too much fun writing: “Jordan and I will sometimes get into our own zone and write our Dracula rock opera,” she says, totally serious. “The others have to get us back to working on the sound.” Being an all-female group certainly sets them apart from the male-dominated rock world, but there’s a collective eye roll at the suggestion of being called a “girl group.” “It’s one of those things where you wish you didn’t have to mention it,” says Eliza, sighing. “It makes us unique, yeah, but we shouldn’t have to define ourselves as a female rock band. We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389

He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years; he makes a presumed deaf and dumb man talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. This is one you have to see!

Domino Theatre presents: One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Dale Wasserman

07:30 PM — 10:00 PM

DIRECTED BY DAN NIZNIK: A charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years; he makes a presumed deaf and dumb man talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. This is one you have to see! Start time: 7:30 p.m.   Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights                              DOMINO THEATRE        52 CHURCH STREET        KINGSTON, ONT.        K7M 1H3   Tickets available at: The Grand Theatre box office  613-530-2050 Online at: www.kingstongrand.ca   Or: At the Domino Theatre door for:  a) the night of the performance if tickets available  b) Cash, credit and debit now accepted at the Domino Theatre door. d) Seniors and members $16 Thursdays only at the Domino Theatre door.   Adults: $20    Students: $10    Children: $10

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389

Colonization Road film screening

04:00 PM — 06:00 PM

Admission is by donation Since Europeans arrived on these shores, roads have been built to bring settlers across the country, connect them with resources to create industry and ultimately to establish a nation. Many of these interconnecting networks are called Colonization Roads. For Indigenous peoples, these roads embody a powerful and ironic reality; colonization is still so powerful, we name our roads after it. Join Anishinaabe comedian, Ryan McMahon as he travels across Ontario learning about Colonization Roads, the ways in which they have dispossessed Indigenous people of land and access to traditional territories while creating space for settlers in the colonial experiment that has become Canada. Amnesty Kingston is pleased to welcome Terri-Lynn Brennan, Haudenosaunee, CEO of Inclusive Voices Inc. and former Heritage and First Peoples programme co-ordinator for the City of Kingston; Karine Bertrand, Metis film scholar and assistant professor in Queen’s Film and Media; and Armand Ruffo, Queen’s National Scholar in Indigenous Literature, associate professor of English and writer of Ojibway ancestry, who will be participating in a discussion with the audience following the screening of Colonization Road.

May 10: The Beaches + Taylor Knox at The Mansion

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party.  However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.  Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance. Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. Collectively best friends, each individual brings something unique to the table, yielding songs that was the fine line between a heavy-hitting gut punch and a hell of a lot of fun. In fact, according to Leandra, they sometimes have too much fun writing: “Jordan and I will sometimes get into our own zone and write our Dracula rock opera,” she says, totally serious. “The others have to get us back to working on the sound.” Being an all-female group certainly sets them apart from the male-dominated rock world, but there’s a collective eye roll at the suggestion of being called a “girl group.” “It’s one of those things where you wish you didn’t have to mention it,” says Eliza, sighing. “It makes us unique, yeah, but we shouldn’t have to define ourselves as a female rock band. We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389

DIRECTED BY DAN NIZNIK: A charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years; he makes a presumed deaf and dumb man talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies.

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing.

May 10: The Beaches + Taylor Knox at The Mansion

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party.  However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.  Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance. Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. Collectively best friends, each individual brings something unique to the table, yielding songs that was the fine line between a heavy-hitting gut punch and a hell of a lot of fun. In fact, according to Leandra, they sometimes have too much fun writing: “Jordan and I will sometimes get into our own zone and write our Dracula rock opera,” she says, totally serious. “The others have to get us back to working on the sound.” Being an all-female group certainly sets them apart from the male-dominated rock world, but there’s a collective eye roll at the suggestion of being called a “girl group.” “It’s one of those things where you wish you didn’t have to mention it,” says Eliza, sighing. “It makes us unique, yeah, but we shouldn’t have to define ourselves as a female rock band. We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389

May 10: The Beaches + Taylor Knox at The Mansion

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party.  However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.  Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance. Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. Collectively best friends, each individual brings something unique to the table, yielding songs that was the fine line between a heavy-hitting gut punch and a hell of a lot of fun. In fact, according to Leandra, they sometimes have too much fun writing: “Jordan and I will sometimes get into our own zone and write our Dracula rock opera,” she says, totally serious. “The others have to get us back to working on the sound.” Being an all-female group certainly sets them apart from the male-dominated rock world, but there’s a collective eye roll at the suggestion of being called a “girl group.” “It’s one of those things where you wish you didn’t have to mention it,” says Eliza, sighing. “It makes us unique, yeah, but we shouldn’t have to define ourselves as a female rock band. We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

We’re a rock band.” They’re excited at the prospect of inspiring other young women to join bands, but it’s not why they play. “We’re not doing this to be role models,” says Kylie. “We’re in this band because we love to play together and we love music.”

City of Kingston Mayors Get A Facelift

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

When guided tours begin May 22, 2018 in Kingston’s City Hall, visitors will experience one of the finest collections of mayoral portrait in North America. The portraits, dating from the 1840s until 2001 are on display throughout Kingston City Hall National Historic Site. In total, these 61 portraits provide a glimpse into the political and social history of Kingston. As with all museum collections, there is a need for periodic repair and conservation of art and artifacts so they are preserved for future generations.  Agents of deterioration, such as corrosion, physical damage and discolouration or mold caused by irregular temperature and relative humidity (RH) are the enemies of museum collections. Proper conservation treatment by a qualified conservator will repair the damage and help to slow down or remove agents of deterioration that would cause further damage. The recent restoration of the City’s nineteenth-century portrait of Mayor Robert McLean is an excellent example of careful and appropriate art conservation. Robert McLean was a local physician and mayor of Kingston in 1846. Prior to treatment, the McLean portrait had many problems. The painting had sustained significant water damage, its canvas was torn and punctured and the frame required repair and restoration. As the treatment progressed, the conservation team and City staff were surprised to learn that previous restorers had over-painted the entire background of the painting. After layers of dirt and dust and over-paint were removed, the conservators discovered a beautiful sunset and fine details in the subject’s figure and clothing. During the treatment process, conservators filled and painted losses and tears in the canvas.  The gilded frame had previously been over-painted with a gold-coloured bronze paint – this paint was removed and the frame re-gilded to resemble its original condition. Although not all artifact conservation projects are as dramatic as the restoration of the McLean portrait, proper and timely care and treatment of the City’s civic collection ensures these heritage objects continue to document the community’s history for generations to come.  http://bit.ly/2pooHtE Now in its 22nd year, free guided tours will be offered May 22 – October 11, 2018 originating from City Hall’s Heritage Resource Centre.  For more information to volunteer as a City Hall Tour Guide, to book a group or educational tour, contact 613-546-4291, ext. 1389
