The city of Enumclaw seeks artists for its Enumclaw Artists' Studio Tour planned for May 12 and 13 – Mother’s Day weekend.

Local artists who would like to participate in the event are invited to submit a request for an application to glaturner@ci.enumclaw.wa.us.

Selected artists will open their studios to the public for sales, conversation, and an occasional snack beginning at 10 a.m. The Arts Alive! Gallery will also be participating  with hands-on artists demonstrating their skills throughout the day. The Enumclaw High  School Hot Shop will also be open with student work for sale.

Studio Tour artists must be available throughout both days to show and talk about their current artwork, process, and where they get ideas.

Interested local artists will be expected to: Display at least ten current works of art that are for sale; be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days; be available for conversations with visitors; submit one digital image of work to glaturner@ci.enumclaw.wa.us, the artwork will be included in advertising materials; post provided signs to help advertise their studio locations and take care of their own sales and tax collection and reporting.

Program signs will be available from the Arts Alive! Gallery by May 4.

Enumclaw Artists’ Studio Tours visitors will begin their free tour by stopping in at Arts Alive! Gallery to pick up a map of participating artists’ studios.  A number of local artists will be creating artwork in the gallery.
