San Juan Island

The San Juan Islands Artists' Studio tour is a free, self-guided tour of more than a dozen working studios, including many participants all around the island. The artists are a group of mutually supportive San Juan Island artists who open up our personal studio spaces, often including artistic gardens, to the public for an entire weekend at the end of spring each year. 

This free community event celebrates the way San Juan Island artists work and live. In addition to displaying their work, including sculpture, jewelry, pottery, printmaking, glass, fiber and fine art, the artists share insights into how their art is created and what inspires and motivates them in their chosen media. This year the tour includes a raffle for two nights lodging at the McCulloch Guesthouse Garden Cottage by the Sea, plus a $50 gift certificate for dinner at Vinny's Restaurant. Details available at each studio, where you can fill out a form at any studio for a chance to win.
