A group of mutually supportive San Juan Island artists open up their personal studio spaces, often including artistic gardens, to the public for an entire weekend at the end of spring each year.

This free community event celebrates the way they work and live. In addition to displaying art work, including sculpture, jewelry, pottery, printmaking, glass, fiber wearable, and fine art, the artists share insights into how their art is created and what inspires and motivates them in their chosen media.

In appreciation of continued support each year, the studio artists are donating work to be given away to the lucky winners of a drawing. Attendees of the tour may put their name in the drawing at each studio they visit. Winners will be notified by phone.
