Applications are now for available for artists hoping to participate in the 2020 Summer and Winter Studio Tours on Bainbridge Island.
The tours are scheduled for Aug. 7-9, and Dec. 4-6, and take place at various artists’ studios and community halls around the island. This year marks the 20th year for the summer event, and the 37th year for the winter event.
The studio tour is a juried art show, seeking professional work, designed and crafted by the artist, with original designs, and quality craftsmanship. Artwork should portray the “hand and spirit of the artist.”
Artwork that is mass-produced with the use of commercial kits or molds, pre-fabricated forms, or imported items are not eligible.
The deadline for the summer tour application is April 15, and for the winter tour, applications are due by Aug. 22.
Artists can apply for both events at this time, and early registration is recommended.
There is an “Early Bird” option due March 15. Artists do not have to live on the island, or own a studio.
For artist application forms, which can be submitted entirely online, go to the “For Artists” page on the studio tour website at www.bistudiotour.com.
Applications can also be found at the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, or by contacting tour manager Dinah Satterwhite at 206-842-0504, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
