Celebrating 20 Years of World Class Art in a Lovely Washington Community

Sprawling farmland, beautiful homes and scenic views of Skagit Bay and Penn Cove, Camano Island is a world away from the Seattle-suburbian life, and it was only a two hour drive.

It was island life without the tourist traps – and we were hooked!

Camano Island Art Tour 2018 The island itself has over 30 cabins, Air BnB’s, great restaurants, a zip line, and miles of hiking trails. No ferry required to get to this island!

We had made our way here to visit the Camano Island Studio Tour, which only happens two weekends a year for five days, Mother’s Day weekend and the following weekend.

The tour and the Camano Arts Association were both founded by Karla Matske and Jack Gunter. The tour’s humble beginnings started with a coffee meeting and then touring a few artist galleries – and is now what it has become today.

The unique event gives visitors an inside look at the artists behind the art.  From ceramics to glass, from painting and mixed media to jewelry, from photography to sculpture to textiles and more – the tour has become one of the premier art events in the Pacific Northwest.
