A visit to Kingston – Murals

Kingston certainly has some impressive murals. These are just a few that we bumped into. There are many more.

Above “Artemis emerging from the Quarry” (2013) by artist, Gaia.

“Pronkstilleven” – a Dutch term meaning “still life”. Also by artist, Gaia. The two figures are artist, John Vanderlyn and Sojourner Truth, both of whom have connections to Kingston.

A visit to Kingston – Time for lunch

By the time we got to Kingston we were both hungry so our first stop was for lunch. After walking around for a bit trying to find somewhere we finished up at the Two Ravens Tavern.

These guitars were two among many. According to Kingston Happenings:

The next thing you notice are the guitars, lots of them in different shapes and colors decorating the walls.

When asked about the guitars, owner Jay Bradley, a colorful character perfectly suited to tending a tavern replies, “Who doesn’t like guitars?” Apparently, Mr. Bradley does. In fact he builds them. He and his friend Dave Harrington, an occasional barkeep at Two Ravens, are the makers. His hankering for guitars stems from a stint in a band. When asked what kind of music they played, he says, “Bad, really bad.”
