The Vashon Island Art Studio Tour

The Vashon Art Tour is held twice a year—always on the first two weekends of December and the first two weekends of May.

For the last 30 years a consistent but fluid group of island artists have shared a commitment to developing the Tour as a cooperative and sustainable way to show and sell their work.  

On the Art Tour visitors will see extraordinary art exhibits put on by the artists themselves in a variety of venues -- studios, workshops, gardens, a yurt, an old auto repair shop, a restaurant, at least one hallway, and several established retail shops and galleries.  

Some studios will have demonstrations going on throughout the weekends.  Visitors can watch a Northwest Native carver at work, observe the art of Ukrainian egg decorating, blow their own glass ornaments, and see pottery wheel throwing demonstrations.  

Invite a friend, cross the water and enjoy a day or weekend of art on beautiful Vashon Island.  It's just a short ferry ride from West Seattle (Fauntleroy), Tacoma (Point Defiance), or Kitsap (Southworth),
