2022 Greater Lanexa Studio Tour Saturday, October 22 10 am - 4 pm Sunday, October 23 11 am - 4 pm
We are pleased to announce the dates for the 2022 Greater Lanexa Studio Tour. 2022 marks the 28th presentation of the popular art tour in picturesque New Kent County. The Tour provides the public with the opportunity to see and to purchase art from a group of local artists in their studios. This year 22 artists will be demonstrating and selling their art at 9 locations. It is a free, self-guided tour and an opportunity to see excellent art right in your own back yard. Art lovers can expect to see displays of some of Virginia’s finest work including pastels, wood turning, jewelry, glass, pottery and more. Come join us for two days of demonstrations and discussions with the artists and their particular medium.
Navigating the Tour: The Tour is designed to let you travel, visit and learn at your own pace. You will be greeted by the artists in their working environment and be able to interact with them about their craft, inspirations and skills. You will, of course, have the opportunity to purchase the art. Feel free to take the Tour in any order and to revisit studios if you wish. Use the Artists Section to learn who you will meet. Visit all 9 studio locations. With our map as your guide, follow the yellow and green GLST signs along Route 60. We look forward to meeting you at the Greater Lanexa Studio Tour

History:The mission of the Tour is to have the artists interact with the public in their working environment and to demonstrate their individual medium and skills. The Tour provides an unusual opportunity for young and old to observe an artist at work and to ask questions. And of course the artists’ works are for sale. It is an ideal time to do some holiday shopping, as there are items in all price ranges, but please do not feel you have to buy. The Tour is designed to let you travel and visit, browse and learn at your own pace, and to have fun.
The Tour was begun in 1994 by sculptor Richard Green and his wife Hilary, who lived on Colony Trail. They had moved here from Canada where they were co-founders of an art tour in Bracebridge, Ontario. That tour continues to thrive as does this one.
Several of our artists are widely known and have won awards. Some artists display in galleries in Williamsburg, Richmond and on the Peninsula. The Tour strives to maintain a standard of excellence in the artists selected to participate. With the increasing popularity of the Tour, we would like to expand our studio locations and to add more new artists. If you are potentially interested in becoming a participating artist for 2023, be sure to talk to one of our artists at the 2022 show or contact us via email.
