Camano Island Art Tour starts Friday!Posted: May 5, 2011
Come one, come all! The 2011 Camano Studio Tour starts on Friday, May 6 and runs through Mother’s Day May 8 from 10am -5pm, and for the second year in a row has been extended to a second weekend: Saturday May14 – Sunday May 15.
A downloadable brochure (PDF) is available by clicking on the image to the right. The brochure will help guide you to each of the 35 studios and 4 galleries participating in the tour, as well as information on other businesses to visit as you make your way around the Island.
While you may not be able to find clues redeemable for hand-blown glass globes as with the Great NW Glass Quest, new to the Camano Studio Tour this year is a secret message with clues hidden around the tour. Those able to deciper it will be entered into a drawing to win donated art and art classes offered by Camano artists!
If you get stuck trying to de-code the secret message, fear not! Each piece of art being displayed is a treasure in and of itself, just waiting for you to discover. The largest annual event on Camano is held strategically over Mother’s Day weekend to help you find the perfect gift for Mom (hint, hint girls!).
52 local artists are participating in this year’s tour, most of whom will be available to interact with and offer their perspective on the artwork they have created. So please join us as we soak in the beauty of each masterpiece and of Camano Island!
