About the Studio Tour
The beautiful seaport town of Port Townsend has traditionally attracted artists who find inspiration in the rural beauty of the Olympic Peninsula. Today, several hundred professional artists make their home here while exhibiting their work in major cities across the nation and around the world.
The Art Port Townsend 18th Annual Artist Studio Tour is a festival of the visual arts featuring an open studio tour of local artists.
The final event of the Annual Art Port Townsend festival – the Artist Studio Tour features a tour of the studios of artists in the greater Port Townsend area. Professional artists working in oils, watercolors, acrylics, pastels, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, woodworking, fabric arts, glass, and a variety of mixed media will open their studios for demonstrations and display of their work. Brochures with the art studio listings and maps are available at the Northwind Arts Center, 701 Water Street and other locations, as well as the Visitor’s Center.
This annual event is a “must see” for regional artists and art lovers. There is no charge for the self-guided tour.
To see samples of the artists’ work, directions to their studio, and a brief artist statement, please follow the navigation links on the right or go to the Studio Tour Artists page.
