San Juan Island Artists’ Studio Tour

06/06/2015 - 06/07/2015 - 10:00 am - 5:00 pm at

The San Juan Island Artists’ Studio Tour is a free self-guided tour from 10am-5pm on June 6th & 7th. Hundreds of people attend this free event every year!

With a mixture of prints, paintings, ceramics, glass, jewelry, photography, sculpture, and fiber, the professional artists open their doors and welcome the public to see where art is created and explain their processes. This is a chance to purchase art at the source, often before the art is shown in national art shows and galleries. Visitors will gain a greater knowledge and clearer understanding of both the artist and their media.  The tour is a free event of art, guest musicians, lovely gardens, and a raffle for art at each studio. Maps and brochures are available at www.sanjuanislandartists.com and at many businesses in Friday Harbor.
