2020 SUMMER STUDIO TOUR UPDATE:
As of today, May 21, 2020, we are still planning on having the August 7-9 Summer Studio Tour. We will take precautions with additional spacing between artists, face masks, and hand sanitizers. If the State requires that events like ours do not take place, of course we will cancel and post a notice here as soon as we know. But with any luck, we hope to hold the Tour, and are excited to hear from so many of you, and know that you’re looking forward to coming!
Our website will be updated with artist information and studio locations & a map once we process the applications and continue with the planning process. Thank you for your continued patience.

The Bainbridge Island Studio Tour invites you to celebrate the beauty and craftsmanship of local, handmade art. We are a twice-annual, free, self-guided art show on Bainbridge Island, Washington – located in the beautiful Puget Sound, just a 30-minute ferry ride from Seattle. Surrounded by water and picturesque views, Bainbridge Island is known for quaint shops, restaurants, bed and breakfasts, and an abundance of art and artists. The Studio Tour has enjoyed great success since 1984, and we hope you’ll experience it for yourself soon!
Regional artists jury in to the summer and winter art shows, and sell their work at Island artists’ studios and historic community halls. When you visit the studios, you’ll see some 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 in person. By visiting and shopping at the Tour, you are not only buying hand-crafted works of art, you are also supporting the local economy and helping artists to thrive.
