About NW Art Beat
NW Art Beat is a free, self-guided tour of Skagit County art studios featuring juried artists from these five counties. This is event showcases the extraordinary talent of local artists and gives the public an insider view on how it all happens. Art must be shown in a working studio located in Skagit County. The artist’s studio or place used for display must be appropriate for public visitation. If you do not have a studio in Skagit County, or your studio is not appropriate for public traffic, please include a request to be hosted by another artist as part of your application. If your application is accepted and a suitable studio in which to show your work is not available all fees will be refunded. Artists are responsible for insuring their own work and space for the tour. Galleries or other rented spaces will not be accepted. Active, working studios that share space with a gallery may be included, but work must be presented in the studio space itself.
