Lopez Island Studio Tour

The countdown is on for preparing for the studio tour on Labor Day weekend.  The information and brochure are available on-line at

My weaving and beading are complete, so set-up and displays are all that need to be done for my own studio.  Well that, as well as something even more important - what refreshments to serve!

2013Labor Day Weekend
August 31 - September 1
10am - 5pm
The Lopez Island Studio Tour invites you to experience first-hand the quality and craftsmanship of the Island's many artists on Labor Day weekend, 2013. This will be the 17th year of inviting the public to open studios throughout the Island – come see where art happens. Visit the studios, enjoy meeting with the artists and discussing their visions and techniques. The Tour is an opportunity to purchase original works of art and to come away with insights to the artists and their community context. Shopping locally supports the local economy, as well as ensuring that artists thrive in this great Cascadia Pacific region.

Lopez Island
A Place Where Art Happens

Come and enjoy. The self-guided tour is free and accessible by car or bicycle. Check out the directions and map. Hours are 10 am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Full-color brochures are available early in the summer – at the Lopez Island Chamber of Commerce, local galleries and shops, regional tourism and visitors centers, and can be downloaded from this site.
Lopez Island – especially in early September – is a combination of sunny, pastoral farmlands, rugged shorelines, soft vistas and friendly folks everywhere. Lopez is the "Friendly Isle" where everyone acknowledges others with a smile, wave or both. A 40-minute ferry ride from Anacortes, Lopez Island has an abundance of art and artists along with shops, restaurants, and accommodations – a perfect place to celebrate summer and enjoy the holiday weekend.
