CAMANO ISLAND STUDIO TOUR

Get inspired by the art. Be amazed by the nature.

Art lives on Camano Island!

22nd ANNUAL CAMANO ISLAND STUDIO TOUR

Launched by a handful of local artists through the Camano Arts Association (CAA), the studio tour has grown to become the single largest tourist attraction of the year on the, Camano Island, featuring more than 30 juried artists.

 

As it has grown, the diversity of the art continues to thrive with award winning artists in watercolor, photography, acrylics, ceramics, jewelry, woodworking, fabrics and much more. There is truly something for everyone on the tour — from the most serious art collector to someone simply looking for a wonderful way to spend a weekend on one of the most picturesque islands of the Pacific Northwest. 

So whether you’ve been a part of the tour since the beginning, or if this 

is your first time here — thank you. Without the enthusiasm and support of visitors like you, the Camano Studio Tour would not be possible.

KATHY HASTINGS COVER ARTIST

The image selected for this year's cover is an encaustic piece which began as an early morning visit to Iverson Spit, one of Kathy's favorite places on the island.

She's drawn to water-related images, often photographing from her kayak in the early morning, enhoying the endless water reflections, the patience of the herons, and the textures of boat hulls – their patina from use and time.

Back in the studio Kathy combines the digital images with melted beeswax (encaustic), oil paing, pastels and mica powder.

You can see this process in a live demo at Studio #7.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:
2020 CAMANO ISLAND STUDIO TOUR IS SUSPENDED

CAMANO ISLAND, Wash. – March 17, 2020 -- Today, the Camano Arts Association board made the decision to suspend the 2020 Camano Studio Tour in response to growing concerns about the spread of COVID-19.

 

The tour, which takes place over Mother’s Day weekend and weekend following every year, is a long-standing Camano Island tradition. While tour participants noted that this decision was not taken lightly, they also described that it was the right thing to do in light of the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommendation to halt gatherings of 50 people or more in addition to the proven methods of social distancing as one of the most effective means of preventing the spread of a virus that can take weeks to incubate with no symptoms.
