The Bainbridge Island Studio Tour invites you to celebrate the beauty and craftsmanship of handmade, locally made art by 48 artists in 5 studios this August 8-10. Our twice-annual art show on Puget Sound’s Bainbridge Island is just a 30-minute ferry ride from Seattle. Surrounded by water and picturesque views, Bainbridge Island is full of quaint shops, restaurants, and bed and breakfasts, and an abundance of art and artists.
The Studio Tour has enjoyed great success since 1984. Its juried artists sell their work at studios and historic community halls. When you visit the studios, you’ll see works in progress, raw materials, tools, and perhaps some inspiration mixed in with a little sawdust.
We’re sure you’ll enjoy meeting the artists and discussing their work and vision. When you buy these hand-crafted works of art, you truly own an “original,” supporting the local economy and helping the arts community to thrive.
- Hours are: Friday & Saturday, 10am-6pm; Sunday, 10am-5pm.
- The Studio Tour is a self-guided art tour with no admission fee, and is accessible by car or bicycle. Check out the directions and map (including a bicycle route) at the right.
- Brochures are available about one month before each Tour and can be downloaded from this site. Copies of the brochure are also available at the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, local galleries and shops, regional tourism and visitor centers, or by mail (drop us an e-mail).
