Artists in and around Edmonds will open their studio doors for the 13th annual Edmonds Art Studio Tour Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 15-16.

The free, annual, self-guided event, sponsored in part by the Edmonds Arts Festival, provides a 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 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

The Edmonds Art Studio Tour is supported by the Edmonds Arts Festival, the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation, the Edmonds Arts Commission, Joyful Art Fund, Lexus of Seattle and others.

Among those on the tour is d’Elaine Johnson, who will be in her Pisces Studio, on a bluff overlooking Puget Sound at 16122 72nd Ave. W, Edmonds.

Johnson describes her paintings as “a vital, cross-country adventure of the imaginative, unseen part of the sea.”

“They portray our collective sea history and heritage through the use of universal imagery. These works are documented myth and lore of the sea and humankind of the past ages, lands, relgions, beliefs and peoples.”

Johnson started her series in 1971. To date, there are more than 1,000 works.
