12 Oct

On October 14 & 15, 2017, you are invited inside the working studios of 70 local artists to learn about the artistic process, ask questions, and purchase one-of-a-kind creations. Plus, you can even win some fabulous items hand-crafted by a selection of artists on the tour just for getting your Studio Tour Passport stamped at each studio address you visit. All studios will feature demonstrations or will have hands-on activities for visitors. It’s family friendly and free!

Check out TacomaArtsMonth.com for the full list of artists, schedule, your Tacoma Studio Tour Passport, and an interactive map where you can plot your own custom tour course.

Pick up your passport at Spaceworks Gallery, or any Studio Tour locations. You’ll find artist details, and contact information, as well as Studio Tour Passport. Get 8 or more stamps to enter drawing for prizes made by local artists.

Studios are open 11am – 5pm. We encourage you to bring cash or check for any purchases you would like to make.
