Martello Alley - An Artful Adventure

The labyrinth of alley-ways in downtown Kingston are like little adventures we can explore everyday - full of surprises, intrigue and history. A turn here, a stone wall there, secret little balconies with a view of a court yard or a sculpture quietly, humbly hanging above your head - these are all gems that are unique to Kingston! Well that alley-way adventure literally just got a lot more intriguing, and colourful!

We are excited to introduce you to "Martello Alley"!

When you venture down Martello Alley at 203 B Wellington Street, prepare to have a smile that only great art and creativity can create! Reminiscent of, and inspired by La Rue du Trésor in Québec this is an adventure with an wonderfully artistic ending!

We are an artist collective offering eclectic works that are sure to brighten any day. Selling original art work as well as prints, this is a space designed for any budget and any style/size of space.

Our work will adorn the walls of the alley tempting you further in to stroll the court yard; a work in progress that promises to be beautifully rich with local history and seasonal landscape design. Then wind up at the atelier where you will find a gallery and artists with their works in progress to welcome you at the end.

Drop by and see what's new, meet an artist and have a cup of coffee with us. We would love to meet you! Visit us at https://www.facebook.com/MartelloAlley to read up about our artists and what's happening at Martello Alley!

Thank you for shopping local and supporting Kingston arts!

  • A funky place to visit! An alley transformed into an art gallery. Many interesting pieces of art made by local artists to buy or simply admire.  more »
  • It’s was a nice 5 minute visit but didn’t find much to do. Maybe it’s due to COVID-19 however it was nice.  more »

  • This is a must see when walking around Kingston! The variety of art is welcoming to all. Inside be sure to read about the transition from alley way to the inviting art show today, and talk to the owner, David, about the various artists work. It’s time well spent! What a magical little place!!! My son loved the art (we all did!) And my daughter loved David's stories! David was very welcoming, friendly and very knowledgeable of the area! Such a sweet little gem in Kingston. Highly recommend this wonderful and beautiful place!!!
  • Impressive galley in an interesting setting. The owner of the gallery has done a great job of creating a terrific place to visit. He is also very enthusiastic and loves to tell you about his work. He is great to chat with. A little tough to find, but be sure that you do.
