Our juried exhibition at Kingston's Pumphouse Steam Museum was highly successful. A well-attended opening night included Kingston's Poet Laureate, Helen Humphries, reading her poem, "Limestone", which fit in so well with our theme. "A Sense of Place" was " a visual exploration of Kingston, a personal, social, historical and emotional look at Kingston through the eyes of OKWA members".

Artists talks were held one evening, featuring Caroline Marshall and Maureen Sheridan.

Two of our members facilitated a collage workshop for school age children, along with touring our show with them. (see photos below)
