Open Studio tours

The dates for the Peninsula-wide artists open studio tours are:
July 17 - 19 and November 27 - 29, 2020

The Open Studio Tours are one of the very best ways to see the beauty of the Peninsula and to discover the many talents our creative members possess. Art studios are open up and down the Peninsula through Ilwaco, Long Beach, along Willapa Bay, Ocean Park and Surfside . . . the art you find as you journey will be as different as the villages you travel through. The Old Train Depot in downtown Long Beach may also showcase a few artists. Several new artist studios are planned for this year as well. It’s interesting to see where the artists actually create and have the chance to talk to them about their work. Most locations will be serving refreshments. This is a family friendly outing and the perfect way to do some special shopping. What’s better than something handcrafted by local artists and one-of-a-kind?

Art around town

PAA offers member artists the opportunity to exhibit their art in local venues through the Art Around Town program. Venues include the Peninsula libraries, hospital, a local Inn and several other locations. This great partnership of the venues and PAA increases awareness of local art, art events, and our member artists.
