Williamsville, Kingston

Williamsville is a neighbourhood located in downtown Kingston, Canada. The neighbourhood is bounded by Concession Street to the north, Princess Street to the south and west, Division Street to the east. Williamsville is represented on the City Council by counsellor Jim Neill and is home to the Williamsville Community Association, a local advocacy group committed to the interests of Williamsville's residents and agencies; as one of the original neighbourhoods of the City of Kingston, Williamsville is home to several good examples of local Limestone and Craftsman-Style architecture. The neighbourhood is known for being the childhood home of Don Cherry. Following the completion of Ontario Highway 401 and declining usage of Ontario Highway 2, the main thoroughfare through Kingston, economic prosperity declined in Williamsville beginning in the 1960s; as a result, Williamsville has been the subject of several revitalisation efforts based on the Williamsville Main Street Study. These efforts have led to extensive renovations to the Kingston Memorial Centre, significant investment in infrastructure along Princess Street along the Williamsville corridor, new residential development projects, the addition of Kingston's second Farmers' Market.

Each year, Williamsville hosts several of Kingston's festivals, including the Kingston Fall Fair, the Kingston Ribfest & Craft Beer Show, the Kingston Health & Fitness Expo. Kingston Memorial Centre Memorial Centre Farmers' Market Don Cherry Official website

Roy De Maistre

Roy De Maistre CBE was an Australian artist of international fame. He is renowned in Australian art for his early experimentation with "colour-music", is recognised as the first Australian artist to use pure abstraction, his works were painted in a figurative style influenced by Cubism. His Stations of the Cross series hangs in Westminster Cathedral and works of his are hung in the Tate Gallery, London and in the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney. Roy went by the name of Leroy Leveson Laurent Joseph De Maistre, but had been born as Leroy Livingstone de Mestre at Bowral, New South Wales on 27 March 1894 into a home of high social standing in the Colony of New South Wales, he was the youngest son of Etienne Livingstone de Mestre, the thoroughbred racehorse trainer of the first two Melbourne Cup winners. De Maistre was educated, together with his brothers and sisters, by tutors and governesses at the family home near Sutton Forest. In 1913 Roy was sent to Sydney to continue his art studies.

He studied the violin and viola at the New South Wales State Conservatorium of Music, including playing the viola in the Sydney Orchestra. He studied painting at the Royal Art Society of New South Wales under Antonio Dattilo-Rubbo who encouraged interest in Post-Impressionism, alongside fellow students Norah Simpson, Grace Cossington Smith and Roland Wakelin, he produced works inspired by reproductions of European post-impressionists, such as van Gogh, Gauguin and Cézanne. He studied under Norman Carter and at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney. In 1916, as art-student Roi Livingstone de Mestre, he joined the First Australian Imperial Force, he was accepted three times after being rejected because his chest measurement was undersized. It appears to be indicative of the great desire of the armed forces to procure men for the World War I war effort that they would have considered accepting De Maistre once, let alone three times in short succession – and indicative of his great desire to serve in the war effort that he continually rejoined after he had found himself too weak to cope with the workload.

In May 1916 he was accepted for the first time but discharged a month in June as medically unfit. He joined again one month in July, but unable to cope physically at his own request he was discharged two months in September, he joined yet once more one month in October and was sent to the Field Hospital at Liverpool to train as a medical orderly. Three months in January 1917 he again requested a discharge as he felt that the work was beyond him. Due to his general weakness and debility his request for discharge was accepted, his general weakness and debility was due to tuberculosis that he had been able to keep hidden from the army doctors, one of whom described his illness as congenital. Each time he joined up his illness had beaten him, he had been unable to continue. Tuberculosis was the reason why he had earlier given up any idea of pursuing a music career, had turned to painting. In November 1916, as Roi de Mestre, he first exhibited, showing Impressionist paintings concerned with the effects of light.

In 1917 he met Dr Charles Gordon Moffit from the Kenmore Hospital at Goulburn, with whom he was to work devising a "colour treatment" for shell-shocked soldiers by putting them in rooms painted in soothing colour combinations. De Maistre developed an interest in "colour-music", his theory of colour harmonisation based on the relationship between colours of the spectrum and notes of the musical scale. With his ordered, analytical mind, he applied the theory of music to his painting, he worked with Adrian Verbrugghen, Roland Wakelin to devise a "colour-music" theory. In 1919 he held a joint exhibition with Wakelin titled Colour in Art to expound his theories. In this art exhibition the musician-turned-painter had chosen colours to harmonise like the notes in music; the exhibition showcased'colour orchestration', an experiment on the interrelation between different hues on the colour spectrum and notes on the musical scale. For example, the note A was matched with the colour red; the only existing example of this experiment is Rhythmic composition in yellow green minor, which visualises music unravel through the flow of colours.

This "colour-music" exhibition became part of Australia's art-folklore as "pictures you could whistle". Influenced by earlier exponents of "colour-music" theory in Europe and America, this exhibition has since been identified as the earliest experiment in pure abstractionism in Australia, his colour charts, showing musical notes corresponding to different hues, are now owned by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, with "colour music" gaining a permanent place in Australian art history. De Maistre was interested in interior decoration and the manner in which the colours within a room could impact upon the human psyche. While exhibiting traditional pieces of fine art in the Colour in Art exhibition, he included a'Colour Organisation in Interior Decoration' segment. In this part of the exhibition, de Maistre displayed domestic interiors based on his'colour music'. Discs and scales to help home-owners integrate colour music into their own homes were made available for purchase. In 1924, this colour harmonising chart was further developed by Grace Brothers and placed for sale in their stores.

After 1919 de Maistre abandoned colour-music and abstraction, though in London in 1934 he reworked some of those same ideas. His paintings of 1921–22 are experiments in impersonal, unemotional tonalism, from the 1930s he turned to a more recognis
