Skagit Artists Together hosts its 12th annual free and self-guided juried studio tour from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m Saturday and Sunday, July 18-19. From Anacortes to Concrete, 30 artists will display their work at 20 studios throughout Skagit County.

This year, signature artist Alfred Currier and Anne Schreivogl will open their Anacortes studio featuring Currier’s rich and colorful landscapes, many of which portray Skagit Valley scenes. Schreivogl’s whimsical and colorful abstractions inspire the imagination.

On this year’s tour visitors will find oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, pastels, jewelry, pottery, ceramic art, woodwork, glass art, functional art, 2-D and 3-D collage, fiber art, and photography. It’s also a great opportunity to chat with the artists, asking them to explain their techniques while you see their work.

Tour brochures are available for download at skagitart.com. Brochures include the artists’ studio addresses, photos, description of their work, and a map to all studio locations. Brochures are also available at local merchants and participating studios. Details: 360-428-6094.
