Art is bursting out all over!

The Spring 2012 Vashon Island Art Studio Tour will be held on two weekends, May 5th-6th and 12th-13th, 10-5 each day. It’s a free, self-guided event with 20 participating studios.

Grab a friend and come see what’s blooming in the studios! Garden sculpture will be sprouting, as well as colorful paintings, prints, pottery, tile and glass. The studios of the woodworkers, textile artists, jewelers and candle maker will be well stocked with art to use and art to wear!

This will be the last Spring Tour for Barnworks, one of the Art Tour’s founding studios! The barn will be lovely with paintings, and the garden will be full of sculptural surprises. This one is not to be missed!

Visitors can "blow their own" glass at Brian Brenno’s studio. And watch Emily demonstrate Ukrainian egg decorating at Fiddle Home Studio. Stop by the Raven’s Nest where native artists will be demonstrating, and Dean Hanmer’s place where you might be tempted to take a class in making garden art!

Follow the numbers designated on the Studio Tour map which is available online at and at most island businesses.
