Exhibit Statement

The Whatcom Artist Studio Tour is celebrating 27 years with an amazing group of artists working in studios throughout Bellingham and Whatcom County.

This exhibit at the Jansen Art Center showcases artwork from many of the artists participating in the 2021 tour. Be sure to pick up your Whatcom Artist Studio Tour guidebook and visit the studios of your favorite artists.

During the Whatcom Artist Studio Tour, artists open their studios to the public. Visitors will meet the artists and get a glimpse into their creative process. Many of the artists will offer tours of their workspaces or demonstrations of the tools and processes they use to create.
