Call to island artists for tour
March 18, 2010 · Updated 8:59 AM
The Whidbey Island Arts Council invites artists to participate in the 2010 Whidbey Open Studio Tour.
The tour will be held on Sept. 25 and 26, and this year, tour organizers are trying something new. Groups of three to six artists will be able to gather in one place to demonstrate their process and display their work.
In addition, two large public spaces will be available for artists to show work and welcome visitors in Langley and Coupeville. Individual artists can also register to participate using their own studio on the tour. There will be no gallery exhibits of artists’ work.
In another new twist this year, there will be no admission charge to attend the tour. Contributions from sponsors and advertisers, all of whom will be listed in the brochure and other publications, plus the registration fees from participating artists, will defray most costs of putting on the tour.
There will be an increase in the registration fees for artists.
As always, the Whidbey Open Studio Tour raises funds for scholarships and grants which help to support island artists and art students.
All applications should be submitted online through the Whidbey Island Arts Council Web site (www.islandartscouncil.org) through April 25.
