Edmonds Art Studio Tour

About
Mission

The free, self-guided Edmonds Art Studio Tour is offered once a year as an opportunity to visit the private studios of local artists in the Edmonds area. It is held on the third weekend in September and is run by an all-volunteer committee of local artists. This fun community event offers an opportunity to purchase handmade work, see new art being created, or just visit and ask questions of the artists.

The mission of the Edmonds Art Studio Tour is to increase the visibility of the Arts in Edmonds. Its purpose is to bring people to Edmonds to see, experience and purchase art from local artists. The Tour highlights private workspaces not usually open to the public, providing a more intimate look at how an artist lives and works. This event consists of a free, 2-day public tour of approximately 20 Edmonds area art studios showcasing approximately 40 local artists. 

A Brief History

The Edmonds Art Studio Tour began in 2006 as Sue Robertson and Tracy Felix's brainchild, with integral support from Barb Goodfellow Childs, Mona T. Smiley-FairbanksKathleen Johnson, Yenny Broadie, and Ann Wood, among several others. Starting with a mere 29 artists in 16 studios, the Tour has run strong every year since-- even offering a digital Tour in 2020. In 2021 the Studio Tour partnered with their long time supporter, the Edmonds Arts Festival, and began offering a Preview Show with a selection of participating Tour artists selling their work and offering live demonstrations. 

Several of our artists have been with us since the beginning:

*Kate joined the Tour in 2006 as a student artist and  joined as a professional artist in 2017.
