2016 Artists...most of them !

Open Studio Tour continues the tradition established in 1993 of juried, select Greater Gig Harbor area artists opening their working studios to the public. The artists are dedicated to providing the rare opportunity of seeing the artists in their studio environment and offering explanations and demonstrations of their materials and art process.

Open Studio Tour is also a once-a year opportunity to admire and acquire fine and functional works of art directly from the people who create them.

If you wish to contact member artists use the email link on their pages.
