Welcome to the 19th annual Camano Island Studio Tour

The 19th Annual Camano Island Studio Tour is gearing up to be one of the most exciting in our history. We are eager to welcome visitors who have made our tour a tradition for years as well as new visitors exploring art on Camano Island for the first time. We have carefully selected 41 juried artists, galleries and studios to participate in the island’s largest tourist event of the year. With each year, more artists apply and the level of skill and talent continues to grow.

This year, the Tour continues to expand with six new artists joining the two-weekend event. These artists include:

2 Weekends 5 Days
Mothers Day Weekend

Friday May 12 –
Sunday May 14

10am – 5pm

Encore Weekend

Saturday May 20 –
Sunday May 21

10am – 5pm

With such growing competition from emerging artists that have come to call Camano Island home, having a new artist named as our cover artist is a special accomplishment. It is a testament to the fact that our community and this tour continues to attract accomplished and talented artists.

For those who are returning to the Tour this year, thank you for making our art community a part of your spring and Mother’s Day traditions. We love sharing our passion for art, and the beauty of our island with you. For those who are new to the Tour, thank you for visiting us!
