Hot Shots Lounge on Longworth Avenue in Charlottetown is the latest non-gallery space to offer opportunities for Island artists to exhibit their work.
In November, Kathy Tweel and Terry Mackinnon, the owners and operators of Hot Shots Lounge, asked their friend Paul Ness to take the idea of showing Island art on their walls forward. Paul rounded up Jim West, Trisha Clarkin, Kier Kenny and P. John Burden to submit some pieces. Paul also provided several of his own works. The owners are pleased to report that not only was the show well received by patrons, but that some pieces were sold.
Kathy and Terry say they are open to hearing more ideas for including art as part of what Hot Shots has to offer.
Hot Shots Lounge is located at 101 Longworth Avenue in Charlottetown, and is open 7 days a week.
