Skagit Artists Together will hold its annual studio tour later this month featuring 13 local artists at 6 open studios, plus another 9 artists in the Mount Vernon-Burlington and La Conner areas.

It’s always a delight to drive around to visit the artists in their studios, and perhaps select an original work of art for your home or for a special gift. The variety of art is amazing – glass, fine jewelry, woodwork, photography, ceramics, and paintings in watercolor, oil, acrylic and mixed media. And it’s all produced by our local artists – not ordered online or made overseas.

You can pick up a copy of the Studio Tour brochure, including a map of the studio locations, at the Visitor Center (9th and Commercial) and other local businesses, or view and download the brochure here.

The Skagit Artists Together studio tour is Saturday & Sunday, July 16 & 17.
