Guemes Art Market and Studio Tour will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2024 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. It will have a FRESH new approach with two group locations as well as selected studios around the island.  We want you! A small table of original treasures or an art-filled tent… there is a place for every island artist. Those with lots of art or those just getting started are invited to participate.

 

Indoor and outdoor booths will be gathered at Guemes Island Community Center and at Paradise Pottery Company offering fine arts and creative crafts. A wonderful eclectic combination of jewelry, décor, yard art, pottery, paintings and more… offered by Guemes Island artists of all ages. 

 

The traditional self-guided studio tour will have fewer locations with a focus on high quality original art. Paintings, wood working, luminaries are among the studio offerings. 

 

The popular Winter Studio Tour on December 7 is planned to repeat the success of 2023. Look for information in the fall.
