Whidbey Art Trail opens its new season on Friday, May 1. Now in its fifth season, Whidbey Art Trail offers free, self-guided tours through the thriving visual arts community of Whidbey Island, about 40 minutes north of Seattle—perfect for daytrippers and visitors on vacation to the scenic Puget Sound area of Washington State.
This year, 24 artists and galleries are featured along the Trail. Visitors will find a unique and exciting experience creating their own art adventures through some of Whidbey’s most beloved galleries and the personal studios of painters, sculptors, weavers, glass artists, potters, and other members of the rich and eclectic Whidbey Island arts community. This “behind-the-scenes” access gives visitors of the Trail the opportunity to speak with artists directly about their process and gain detailed insight into their work.
Groups and individuals interested in building a custom art tour can pick up a brochure or visit www.WhidbeyArtTrail.com where they will find the complete roster of artist studios and galleries on the tour with hours of operation, contact information, and directions to the locations. For studios listed as “by appointment only,” visitors are asked to call ahead to arrange their visit.
Whidbey Art Trail brochures are located on the Mukilteo/Clinton and Pt. Townsend/Keystone ferry routes, as well as visitor centers and businesses across Whidbey Island—from Clinton to Oak Harbor, WA.
