EDMONDS, Wash. — Edmonds Art Studio Tour is excited to announce this year’s event is being planned as an in-person community engagement on September 18 & 19, opening the studios of our artists to those interested in purchasing handmade works and learning more about each artist’s creative process.
A Creative View Into the Artists
The artists selected to participate in the annual studio tour are chosen based on specific criteria, including a connection to the Edmonds community. These artists have agreed to safely show their work while adhering to the restrictions on gathering in person. During the weekend of September 18th & 19th, the public can tour their studios where all artists will be featuring their work and will be available to discuss their creative process and some will be sharing demonstrations. Their work, much of it for purchase, is currently featured on each artist’s website, and all are accessible via the Edmonds Art Studio Tour website.
Art is Healing
Art has many healing qualities to not only the artists who create, but also to those who find a connection with art. Now more than ever we can all benefit from something which clears the mind. This year’s artists appreciate your support and in turn hope to provide you with a healthy distraction.
This year’s studio tour is made possible by the volunteer time of the participating artists, the generous financial contributions of our sponsors, and funding from the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation and the Edmonds Arts Commission Tourism Promotion Fund through the City of Edmonds Lodging Tax fund.
Preview Select Tour Artists and Live Demonstrations
This year, select artists from the 2021 Edmonds Art Studio Tour will be hosting a preview sale of their works at the Edmonds Arts Festival. Tour artists will be available to answer questions about their work as well as the Tour, and facilitating sales of any work visitors may wish to take home. In addition, there will be live demonstrations of their techniques throughout the weekend. Note that proceeds from these sales will benefit both the Festival as well as the artists themselves.
