Announced September 4, 2019: News (Big News!): We’ve sold Artword Artbar. Our lovely place on Colbourne Street. This fall will be our last! And it will be a blast! So don’t be downcast. Don’t look aghast. Just get here real fast.
We’ve been doing this for ten years, and it’s time to celebrate. This fall, we’re featuring some of the musicians that have been through the journey with us. We’ll be going like always until November 16, when The Hill Brothers Bluegrass Band will be serenading us out with some lovely harmonies and ultra-fancy picking. (Due to demand, we’ve added a second Hill Brothers show on November 17 at 3 pm.)
And then, starting December 5, 2019, 15 Colbourne Street will become the new home of SMPL Architectural Design Studio. Click here for a very cool artist’s conception of the SMPL vision for the building. https://www.instagram.com/p/B2CqxzPAp8K/

Artword Artbar at 15 Colbourne is closed from November 18 to December 4, 2019, while we clear out the restaurant equipment and our theatre gear. The new owners of the building take possession on December 5, 2019.

Is there Artword life after December 5?
YES! The Artword Theatre folks, Ron and Judith, continue to live in Hamilton and will create theatre projects and workshops in various venues (to be determined.)

Stay in touch! To receive Ron’s email Newsletter and find out what the Artword Theatre folks will be up to next, send an email to Ronald Weihs <rweihs@artword.net>
