Event Category: Art Walks & Studio Tours
The Central Island Studio Tour is held on the last weekend of May each year. Studio artists include both established and well-known artists – folks who sell their work around the world and are collected in public and private galleries – as well as emerging and experimenting artists who have either just begun their careers or are perhaps shifting to a new genre.
There is something for every taste – paintings, sculpture, pottery, photography, stained glass, fused glass, blown glass, scratchboard, pyrography, puppets, weaving, woodwork, furniture, figurines, big art, little art, art cards, art prints, original art, upcycled art. There’s art that lights up, art you can read and art that floats. There’s realistic, abstract, modern, contemporary, traditional, whimsical, weird and wonderful art.
There is no fee to visit the studios, and many will have surprise treats to share on Studio Tour weekend, as well as great in-studio pricing for their work. Numerous stops include multiple artists, too.
To go on the tour, all you need to do is pick up a copy of the Central Island Arts Guide or visit CentralIslandTour.com to find all the listings. On the website there are photo galleries, studio details and links to detailed maps.
