Art Port Townsend – About the Studio Tour

August 26 - 27 / 10 am - 4 pm

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 locally, in cities across the nation and around the world. 

The Art Port Townsend 19th Annual Artist Studio Tour is a festival of the visual arts featuring an open studio tour of local artists.

The Studio Tour is the final event of the annual Art Port Townsend Festival. Professional artists open their studios to provide demonstrations and display their work in many different mediums such as oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastels, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, woodworking, fabric arts, glass and a variety of mixed media.

This annual event is a ‘must see’ for regional artists and art lovers. There is no charge for the self guided tour.
