Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour 2018

Brian and Karen Markham welcome you into their workshop during the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour.

You are invited to two weekends of discovery during the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour on September 22-23 and 29-30, 2018 from 10 am to 6 pm. MAST is Canada’s original studio tour and we are celebrating our 40th anniversary.

Visit 19 studios, get behind the scenes, ask questions and learn about the process of creating art from the makers. We are all curious about the artist’s life and to have the opportunity to view the bowls, paintings, jewellery, pottery or fibre art right in the studio gives us insight and appreciation of the talent and beauty of the craft. Art that you purchase and take into your home is much more meaningful when you have visited the studio and met the artist.

Enjoy travelling to my workshop and experience nature’s artwork in the changing colourful leaves, northern rock cuts, winding roads and sparkling lakes. Karen and I look forward to welcoming you to our studio on Rebecca Lake.

Plan your tour by going to the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour website. Here are a few of the artists in the Huntsville area, close to my workshop.  We look forward to meeting new people and saying hello to old friends who are returning to see our newest creations.

Pam Carnochan creates “Watercolours With Wool” using the dyed wool from her own sheep.

Catherine O’Mara is inspired by the rhythms of nature as she creates her luminous egg tempera paintings.

Mark Reeder is a traditional painter and fine art photographer specializing in still life, landscapes and portraits.

Marni Martin creates tapestries and woven wearables with her brilliant hand dyed yarns.

Jennifer Pimentel’s pencil drawings capture people, wildlife, and architecture with incredible precision and unique sensitivity.
