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, 2013. This will be the 16th 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. Shopping locally supports the local economy, as well as ensuring that artists thrive in this great Cascadia Pacific region.
