From prints to teapots, bells to bowls, the spring 2018 art studio tour will have it all on display and for sale on the island by local artists.

The Vashon Island Visual Artists Studio Tour will have 26 island destinations, peppered throughout town and across ths island, open to visitors this weekend, May 5 and 6, and next weekend, May 12 and 13.

Many of these galleries are private, tucked-away down a winding road or up a flight of stairs. Some are attached to the artist’s home. The intimacy of entering these oft-closed studios comes only twice a year: once in May and once in December.

Visitors to the studios can get a sense of the artist’s process, meet him or her, and get first pick from island-made works of art, from jewelry to paintings to guitars to masks, during the two-weekend event.

More information about the studio tour can be found online at vivaartists.com.
