Potential New Artist Tour Members
Update: We will soon be accepting applications for the tour on Sept 18 & 19, 2021. Please read through all of the requirements, guidelines, and terms & conditions before applying. Applicants must submit by March 15th, 2021 to be considered.
If you are a local Edmonds artist or have strong ties to the arts community here in Edmonds, please consider applying to be on future tours. We are looking for artists with their own studios who love to share their creative process and work. We understand some artists may not have their own studios, but since this is a community, we figure out a way to share space within the current studios for other artists as well, so don't let that hold you back.
The Edmonds Art Tour's focus is to bring the community to the studios of our local artists to give them an inside look into how the magic happens. It's a strong community builder and opportunity for artists to share their personal work.
The tour is on the 3rd weekend of September every year. Please consider participating on the committee too. It's a great way to make other artist friend connections. Please email us to get on our artist mailing list for future applications. Thanks!
