The 2021 Studio Tour was a huge success thanks to the many friends and artists who joined us for a modified version of the tour this year.
It was a thrill to see everyone and be reminded of just how special this arts community is. Many artists had record attendance at their studios and galleries despite the fact that we held the event over one weekend in June instead of the traditional two weekends in May. More than 30 artists at 16 studios and four galleries participated in this year’s tour – representing diverse talent and mediums, from ceramics and glass to paintings, photography and sculpture.
While the shorter, later tour date was necessary as the nation still is slowly returning to a post-pandemic reality plans are already underway for a return to the tour’s traditional Mother’s Day weekend kickoff in 2022.
Stay tuned for more information as we make preparations for next year. Until then, thank you for proving once again that art truly does live on Camano Island.
2021 COVER ARTISTS
Spending time near salt water is good for my soul. I bring the tranquility of the sea into my glass art with reflective and transparent glass, inspiring colors and designs, peaceful flow, and soft textures.
The clear air, the sounds and colors of nature on Camano Island have awakened my appreciation of the wonders of nature. I try to translate this feeling into my paintings.
Working with clay leads to a sincere appreciation of the quirks and anomalies that happen when making something by hand. It’s a meditation on the quiet beauty of less than perfect.
Kathy is known for her woven silver wire chains and patterned metal work combined with beach rocks. She will also be introducing salmon skin leather earrings and some other new surprises!!
I strive to convey the experience of feeling fully present and alive through expressive brushstrokes and sometimes muted, other times vivid emotive colors. Through aerials, portraits, and abstracts, my work pulls nature into our homes to inspire us to seek out the beauty in the world all around us.
