Arts Commission announces local artists set to participate in 2018 Studio Tour
New and returning artists who will participate in the 98221 Artists’ Studio Tour set for October 20-21 have been announced by Lisa Rhoades, Anacortes Arts Commissioner and co-chair of the event.
“We’ll have over 40 artists in the tour this year — another increase in the number of Fidalgo Island artists who will be part of the studio tour — now entering its third successful year,” Rhoades told the artists who recently gathered for an organizational meeting at the Depot. “That means this year’s studio tour will be bigger and better than ever, thanks to your interest and support for this event,” she told the assembled artists who work in many mediums at their studios - all located in the 98221 Zip Code.
In addition to 23 studios that will be open to the public, artists will also welcome visitors at the Depot Arts & Community Center (3) and the Croatian Cultural Center (4). Downtown galleries — Scott Milo and Good Stuff Arts — will also be open for both days of the free, self-guided tour with artists present. Hours will be 10 to 5 both days. Artists at all locations will be demonstrating their work and answering questions from visitors.
New to this year’s tour will be: Diana and Pat Dunn - cedar bark baskets, hats, jewelry and rattles; Jan Rummig Hunt - beaded Kumihimo jewelry; Darlene Klister - wire and metal art; Doug Le Clair - Photography; Jill Mix - mixed media, watercolor/ink drawings; Dona Reed - gourds, printmaking, mixed media; Janis Bailey and a number of other Samish Nation Coast Salish carvers, including Bill Bailey (Tsul-Ton, resident carver) and other carvers at the Beaver Lodge carving shed in Anacortes; Marcel Schwarb - acrylic, oil and pastel painting; Mykki Marshe Slivinski - texture glazed acrylic and oil paintings.
