Busy New Year

Busy New Year

It’s already February – we’ve been busy painting for the last few months since our show. Swamped with commission pieces and getting ready for the London Artist Studio Tour in April.

Corinne has taught a workshop with Westland Gallery, and Peter has one coming up with them as well in March. Also, good news – Peter is back teaching at Fanshawe this spring. (A watercolour class that will have a 10 week duration….please email if you’re interested.)

Save the date!!

Save the date!!

We are very much looking forward to hosting our Open Studio Art Show and Sale this coming November 18 and 19, 2022. Friday (Opening Night) 7-9:30pm and Saturday 10am-5pm. We have not been able to have one in two years because of Covid, we are so happy to be getting into a better flow of shows and interaction with the world. Luckily Steve Sawchuck (Mulon Bluze) will be joining us with his sweet classical accoustic guitar. The House and Studio will be filled with art and art lovers like you.

We will be posting our newest pieces on our website to give you a sneak peek and what you have to look forward to so keep your eyes out! Thank you and we hope to see you in November.

New Paintings for Summer.

New Paintings for Summer.

It has been a busy few months here in the studio, with many new pieces created and a good number of commissioned works finding new homes as well. We’ve both been busy at the easel, and with lots of other projects as well, including a trip to BC to help with a move. Here are a few pictures of some of the new pieces that we’ve been able to create for you! I will have them uploaded to our “For Sale” paintings in the next day or two.

“Show and Tell”, oil on panel, 9″x12″, Peter Karas.
Chatham Windmills, oil on panel, 8″x8″, Corinne Garlick.
Gibbons Parking Lot, oil on panel 9″x9.5″, Peter Karas.
“FacePaint” Series, oil on panel, 8″x10″, Peter Karas.
Child Reading, oil on panel, 8″x8″, Corinne Garlick.

We’ll be showing our work at the 2022 Home County Music and Art Festival in Victoria Park again, after a two year covid break. It should be fun to see lots of people from the community again, and hear all the great music too. Summer festivals are what really make London “come alive” for the both of us, and it is always great to see everyone out enjoying our city.

A New Season…..

A New Season…..

We’re happy that spring has finally arrived in the last few days; it’s been a long and cold winter and we’re looking forward to the warmth!

We’ll be doing the Studio Tour again this year on April 22nd – 24th. We’ve made many new pieces for that show and we’re always excited for you to see them. (Many of our other outdoor shows are also back on again this year after a two year break, and we’re trying to sort out which ones we’ll be doing as the season progresses, but it’s nice to finally be able to get out and show our artwork again.)

Here is the link to the Studio Tour Website.

London Artist’s Studio Tour 2021

London Artist’s Studio Tour 2021

It has been a whole year since we last opened our home and studio to the public for an art show. Like for many of us it has been a challenging year with lots of opportunity to learn and grow. We are very excited to see everyone and to share what we have been up to with our art and home/studio. Our art will fill this place and we have an almost fully completed kitchen that Peter (basically) built from almost scratch. There are also 23 other artists on this tour that are sure to inspire you. So come out and enjoy you local artistic talent!

October 1, 7:00pm-9:30pm

October 2, 10:00am-5:00pm

October 3, 12:00-5:00pm ‘
