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>

A return visit by Joe Crookston, songwriter, guitarist, painter, fiddler, slide player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. His songs are universal, his rhythm infectious and in concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next. Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, turbary thieves, Galway heather, meter maids and drunk roosters. At the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired. http://www.joecrookston.com/
Whether he’s picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in.
Watch a YouTube video. It’s good, but it’s not the same. You gotta come to a show. With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and funny as hell.
