The Edmonds Art Studio Tour will be held Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 15-16

Each artist preparing for the Edmonds Art Studio Tour in September is excited about new work to be unveiled during the event, as well as old favorites they’ll have available for their fans and collectors.

Oil and pastel artist Janis Graves will be showing her new small floral paintings on textured surfaces. 

“I will also have some new pieces from my trip to a working cattle ranch in Colorado,” she said. For those who love her past work, she promises to have a selection of her vibrantly life-like animal paintings and soothing still life pieces.

Better Days Ahead by Andy Eccleshall
Landscape painter Andy Eccleshall has “a new show at Cole [Gallery in Edmonds] opening around the same time as the Tour, so there will be a few pieces from the new collection in the studio.”

Not as large as his typical works, these pieces will offer collectors with smaller display areas a chance to find just the right painting. He will also have some discounted older works available.

Jewelry maker Ellen Chappelle is enjoying “reimagining age-old chainmaille patterns into modern, delicate designs.” She is also creating smaller versions of her intricate, special-occasion wire-wrapped pieces designed for everyday wear. And for the animal lovers who mourn past pets, she continues to create “custom glass pendants and ornaments with their furry friends’ ashes fused inside.”

Bracelet by Meredith Arnold
Designing jewelry of a completely different style, mixed media artist Meredith Arnold has developed a method for making lightweight, dichroic-looking jewelry using polymer clay instead of glass. And as always, she will have a wide variety of earrings available. “Earrings are a great way to try some new designs,” she said.

Representational artist Angela Bandurka is planning “to feature some works on paper in charcoal at this year’s Tour, work that has never been publicly displayed before.” She will also show her sketchbooks, in which she plans her paintings.

The free, annual, self-guided Edmonds Art Studio Tour provides an exclusive glimpse into 15 private art studios showcasing the work of 30 local artists. The Tour offers patrons an opportunity to meet professional artists, see how they create their work, and purchase pieces directly from the makers. Studios will be open from 10am to 5pm both days. Sept 15-16
