Lopez Island: A Place Where Art Happens

The Lopez Island Studio Tour invites you to experience first-hand the quality and craftsmanship of the Island's many artists on Labor Day weekend. This will be the 20th year of inviting the public to open studios throughout the Island - come see where art happens. Visit the studios, enjoy meeting with the artists and discussing their visions and techniques. The Tour is an opportunity to purchase original works of art and to come away with insights to the artists and their community context.

Come and enjoy. The self-guided tour is free and accessible by car or bicycle. Check out the directions and map. Full-color brochures are available early in the summer - at the Lopez Island Chamber of Commerce, local galleries and shops, regional tourism and visitors centers, or you may download a copy from this site.

Lopez Island in the late summer is a combination of sunny, pastoral farmlands, rugged shorelines, soft vistas and friendly folks everywhere. Lopez is the "Friendly Isle" where everyone acknowledges others with a smile, wave or both. A 40-minute ferry ride from Anacortes, Lopez Island has an abundance of art and artists along with shops, restaurants, and accommodations - a perfect place to celebrate the end of summer and enjoy the holiday weekend.
