New 98221 Artist's Studio Tour set for October 22/23 this fall!
Response to the 98221 Artist's Studio Tour this fall has been "out of this world" according to Anacortes Arts Commission (AAC) member and event chair Lisa Rhoades. Our 98221 Anacortes/Guemes Island artists are so excited and so supportive of this event. This adds a major new event to the local arts calendar and provides another way for artists and art enthusiasts to interact in studios and galleries across the area.
We are featuring 30 Artists in 16 studios/workshops (some hosting multiple artists), 3 galleries, The Depot Art and Community Center, and, just added to the tour, the Croatian Cultural Center (801 5th St., just down from the Depot), with artists onsite, over this two day event.
This tour will give a unique opportunity for visitors to meet the artists, a rare look at the real working spaces of a variety of artists, and will emphasize demonstrations of how they create their art, and to show works in progress as well as finished artwork.
Everything from metal work, painting, graphics, sculpture and carving, to fiber art, jewelry, print-making and photography will be featured. Participating studios on the self-guided tour will be well-signed, and maps/directions will be widely available. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sat/Sun.
The Anacortes Arts Commission and our local artists are excited to give you this special experience, so whether in you own back yard, or an Island get-away, come enjoy the Arts in Anacortes!
