Artist Studio Tour Celebrates 32 Years
With 17 Open Artist’s studios on San Juan Island
June 3rd & 4th, 2023 from 10:00am to 5:00pm
San Juan Island, WA…” Our island artists open their beautiful gardens and studios to visitors during the first weekend every June. It’s a magical, inspirational experience,” say art tour organizer Mary Sly. “This is a special chance to meet the artists in their natural habitat.”
Located in the Salish Sea one-and-a-half hour drive north of Seattle drive (and a beautiful ferry ride) north of Seattle, the gardens of San Juan Island are in full bloom and the vistas enchanting. The artists invite you to visit their open studios on June 4th & 5th, 2023 from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
This the opportunity to experience 17 working studios with 46 artists, with diverse medias and backgrounds. Find paintings, sculpture, furniture, pottery and rugs for your home; jewelry and art-clothing for yourself and special gifts for your friends. Join artists and their guests to experience how art is made and the spaces it is created in.
This self-guided, free event, welcomes all visitors and residents of our beautiful island. Spend the weekend exploring the historic town of Friday Harbor, stay overnight in one of our many lovely lodging facilities, and crisscross the island on our scenic roadways.
Each individual studio will be offering a door prize. As you visit each studio, fill out a raffle form for a chance to win a piece of art from an island artist.
Sign up for our email list to receive updates on the tour, and a printable map. Informational poster and sample prize will be available at each studio location. You can also see samples of the artists work on our website: www.sanjuanislandartists.com
“The island’s beauty inspires so many artists to create art, and the Tour is an amazing opportunity to feel some of that inspiration, and take a bit of it home with you,” says Sly
The San Juan Island Artists’ Studio Tour was started in 1991 with the artists intention of opening their studios to the public for a weekend. We, the artists, wanted to show our friends and neighbors our unique lifestyles, our tool of the trade, and the artistic process from the conception of an idea to a finished work of art.
