Celebrate all-American art on Whidbey Island during the Fourth of July weekend!
While fireworks, barbecues, buckets of mussels and evening sails across Penn Cove are all part of traditional Whidbey Island activities, it’s also the perfect time to celebrate the spirit of American art with a studio tour of the Whidbey Art Trail.
Artists’ studios and galleries will welcome visitors during the third annual “Fireworks + Artworks” event. Stop in and see what new creations are underway. You may find a potter throwing a new vessel, a painter placing the final strokes on a painting or a glass blower twirling wands in a hot fire. And you may discover your own inner artisan as you take inspiration from the work of these treasured American artists.
Pick up a Whidbey Art Trail brochure on the Mukilteo and Coupeville ferries or at visitor centers throughout Whidbey Island. Or download a Whidbey Art Trail map from the website.
Once you arrive on the island, look for the red Whidbey Art Trail signs along the country roads.
