Art Studio Tour gives rare glimpse of local artists’ personal creative space


The annual tradition continues this weekend, as 18 Edmonds-based artists open their personal studios to the public, offering the rare opportunity to meet one-on-one with the artists in their own creative space.

This year’s tour offers the chance to interact with the talented creators of original paintings, sculptures, jewelry who produce original art in our community, and whose work helps solidify Edmonds as one of the Puget Sound area’s premiere artistic locales.

“Edmonds is such a fantastic community for artists,” said award-winning sculptor David Varnau, whose Driftwood Lane studio is among those open to visitors. “We are so fortunate to live in a community with such strong support for the arts, and to have a critical mass of talented, creative people in Edmonds who draw inspiration from each other.”

The Edmonds Art Studio Tour is open to the public free of charge, and runs through 5 p.m. Sunday Sept. 17. Many artists are offering work for sale, providing the rare opportunity to own original art produced by some of our community’s most talented creators.
