Visit the stops on Arts Society King’s Studio Tour

The timing of Arts Society King’s 17th annual studio tour couldn’t be better.
After what seems like an eternity, this version of the tour will find artists opening their studios and galleries and museums hosting exhibitions on April 23 and 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

It seems like old times.

“Last year, we had a virtual tour, this year we will be hosting a in-person event,” began tour organizer and Arts Society King member Kathleen Rodgers, “There are 21 artists participating and we will have five home studios and two public locations – the King Heritage & Cultural Centre and Laskay Hall right next door.”

Visitors on the tour will find 16 artists represented at King Heritage and Laskay Hall. Four studios are only a short jaunt away in King City with the remaining studio requiring a scenic drive to Schomberg.

The artists who are participating on the tour were selected by the studio tour organizing committee and were required to submit an application and up to five photos of their work for consideration.

“There are mostly painters on this tour,” Kathleen said. “There are some watercolourists, mixed media artists, a photographer and textile artists. And, we have some potters.”

Among the painters visitors will encounter are Ivanka Pipinkova, Mary Morganelli and Lynn Wilson. Viewers will find touchstones to Alex Colville, Phillip Pearlstein and Georgia O’Keefe respectively in these artists.

The black and white photographs of Steve Silverman – moody and evocative – are a visual treat.

Shiva Moghaddasi’s work includes a variety of creative pottery & textile art, ranging from hand-built clay sculptures to hand-woven textiles. Master weaver/ textile designer Inge Dam will be offering luxurious handwoven scarves, cowls and shawls.

“Artists need a way to reach their customers, to reach their community,” Kathleen began. “Organizing events like this helps bring customers to the artists and build the artists profiles. A show like this has a better chance of bringing our artists an audience than what they might get by doing a solo show.”

Arts Society King’s 17th Annual Studio Tour King will be held on April 23 and 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
