Surrounded by the vibrant beauty of Mother Nature, local artists thrive.
Galleries and studios in the San Juan Islands, such as WaterWorks Gallery in Friday Harbor, showcase the best local and regional talent. Throughout the Pacific Northwest artists are pushing the boundaries, mixing mediums and techniques to create pieces that embody a sense of soul.
The nature of the San Juan Islands’ laidback environment has created an accessible art culture. Unlike the big city where galleries have a tendency to be more pomp-and-circumstance than down-home beauty, the galleries in the San Juans focus on presenting pieces you can relate to – art you would actually like to take home and look at day-after-day.
