Gig Harbor Open Studio Tour

By Kristin Kendle on September 11, 2012

September 15 and 16, head to Gig Harbor for a day of arts. The Gig Harbor Open Studio Tour is a self-guided tour welcoming the public in to art studios throughout Gig Harbor.

Artists on this tour are selected by a jury to ensure that they each have a high level of quality, design, and uniqueness in their works, as well as a studio set up that is worthy of being open to the public. There will be 20 studios on the tour, featuring 25 artists. Artwork media include oil, watercolor, and pastel paint, sculpture, wood, mixed media, and beyond.

The tour is completely free and self-guided. You can download a map from the website:

Locations will take you on a tour of Gig Harbor as well-from the Harbor area to quiet residential nooks to studios on Fox Island. A GPS or smart phone may be a wise investment.
