Ice shines a light on art


PETAWAWA/KINGSTON – One local artist and a former born-and-raised Pembroke artist are helping to turn heads in the City of Kingston with 300-pound art ice blocks.

Froid’Art – Art on Ice is a first-time exhibit and pilot project, which features about 10 artists’ creations, made on plastic mylar and then put into a block of ice and lit up with LED lights at nighttime.

The pilot project is the brainchild of Kingstonian artist David Dossett, who also has work shown in the exhibit. He wanted to put a unique twist on outdoor winter art this season, he told Sun Media’s The Kingston Whig-Standard.

A total of 12 art ice blocks were created and recently found homes in and around the city of Kingston at local businesses. One is also in Napanee. The 300-pound art ice blocks were delivered towards the end of January. Businesses get to keep the art after the ice melts.
