Here is more on the show below:


April 21 & 22, 2018 is Studio Tour King; the 13th annual an art event that brings local artists and art enthusiasts together in charming Schomberg, friendly Nobleton and beautiful King City.

40 Artists 17 Locations

Visitors from near and far are invited to three of King Township’s beautiful villages, all just moments apart; a weekend in ‘King’ country will not disappoint. Beauty and art are everywhere; the countryside is rich with raw materials that our artists have used to draw their inspiration.

Charming Schomberg is located in the northwest section of King Township and offers a tree-lined, quaint village atmosphere. Main Street has unique shops, superb cafes and funky restaurants and there is plenty of free parking. And as Schomberg is nestled in the northern corner of the world-famous Oak Ridges Moraine, the easy drive up and around is like driving through a natural art gallery all its own.  Artists can be found in rural Schomberg and as you drive throughout the rolling hills, your eyes will delight in the beauty. Visit our artists clustered on or just off Main Street in welcoming, warm and bright studios.

Friendly Nobleton is nested in the southwest section of King Township and at its hub, is approximately 10 minutes from King City to the west and Schomberg to the south. It offers a community full of heritage, charm and vitality.  Six distinctive artists can be found at the easy-to- access Nobleton Community Hall, in the heart of the village near cafe’s and a perfect spot for a bite.  There is plenty of free parking at the hall and once you arrive, enjoy meeting our artists and delighting in their one-of-a-kind creations.

Beautiful King City, is the largest village in the Township. Located east of Nobleton and southeast of Schomberg, this community yearns to be explored. There is a significant arts presence and much to see and do in King City; we invite you to tour the area to meet our admired artists. Nine artists can be found fairly close together in their residential studios and the balance of artists will present at the King Heritage and Cultural Centre tempting you with an ART EXPERIENCE no doubt.

Yes the annual Studio Tour King is around the corner, this year the weekend of April 22nd and 23rd.

You can see more information on the Tour on the Arts Society King (ASK) website here. There are 51 artists at 26 locations – a record on both counts for the show.

Many visitors also enjoy seeing the state of my wife and my various perennial gardens that surround my Gotham Glassworks Studio, which include a 40-plant hybrid tea rose garden (I take care of that one). 

My studio is in the rear yard of “Doctor Kay’s House” on Main Street Schomberg, a heritage home occupied by this long standing and well known Doctor from about 1909 to 1953.

See you there!  I’m excited to show off my latest lighting creations.

Come and see my newest works in my barn studio, which received a King Heritage Award in 2012 for its celebration of Adaptive Re-use.

Hint: I’m focusing on lighting this year as a niche application for my glass art.

Gotham Glassworks is located at the rear of my home on Main Street in historic Schomberg.

There are over 30 artists for this year’s Tour – you can certainly plan a nice early Spring drive with the brochure and map in hand!
