With more than 300 artists living and making their art on Whidbey Island, how could I pass up the chance to share a few more photos from my driving tour along the Whidbey Art Trail?
From flameware . . .
to jewelry and painting . . .
weaving . . .
and glass art . . .
the Whidbey Art Trail offers an abundance of creative possibilities.
Ready for your own art excursion? Here a few tips to make the most of your visit:
* Although the tour is open year-round, it pays to call ahead if you want to meet particular resident artists at play in their creative space.
* Feel free to ask the artists about their creative process, how they got their start, etc. You can even ask to try your own hand at an art-making technique.
* Take a break from the trail with a stop at Spoiled Dog Winery or Whidbey Island Distillery. End your day with Happy Hour and a bite to eat at Fraser’s Gourmet Hideaway in Oak Harbor or Coupeville’s Captain Whidbey’s Inn.
* Want to make this a weekend or weekday getaway? Whidbey Camano Islands offers a variety of lodging suggestions to meet your needs.
For more fun with wine, spirits and art, visit November 8 & 9 for Autumn on Whidbey.
*Many thanks to the artists along the Whidbey Art Trail and our Whidbey Island hosts for my arts & culture fix!
