Mona Fairbanks’ freshly painted rockfish swim on a brick wall on 5th Avenue South, while her nearby studio reveals unique graphic canvases and prints.

On Main Street, Andy Eccleschall’s murals reflect the compelling paintings found in his studio.

The Edmonds Art Studio Tour presents an opportunity to expand past the exterior face of art to the interior space of creation.

A loom with its warp and shuttle at Heather McGilvray’s studio stands next to wearable and framed weavings.

At other studios, paintings hang not far from brushes, sculptures sit near tools, lathes by wooden bowls, and ceramic works are close to the kilns that fired them.

On Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 21-22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Edmonds Art Studio Tour offers a chance to browse a stack of colorful paintings and prints, and marvel at the intricate workings of hand-made jewelry.

Unique pottery, woodworks, sculpture, weavings, and photographs are also showcased.

With 42 artists in 23 studios, the free, self-guided tour offers up colorful, statuesque, and expressive artworks on display.

Artists’ interpretations vary from realistic to abstract, and from the spiritual to a touch of fantasy. Get the first chance at new creations.

Plan a day to admire local studio art, dine in Edmonds and maybe toss in a few murals, too.

Presented by the Edmonds Art Festival, and funded in part by the City of Edmonds Art Commission Tourism Promotion Fund.
