The sixth annual ArtSI Open Studio Tours will take place on Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. There’s no charge for admission for the up close and personal look at the studios of 16 Island artists.

According to participating artist Mike Zisser, the event “is a great way to view art where it starts.” The weekend offers visitors a unique opportunity to go behind the gallery scene to meet professionals and see where their work is created and to learn about their creative process.

Founded six years ago by working Island artists of various disciplines and styles, ArtSI has become an annual favorite tradition for Islanders and visitors.

Artwork will be available for sale at the studios and most of the artists will accept commissions. Participating artists include: Janet Culbertson, Roz Dimon, Katherine Hammond, Megan Hergrueter, Liss Larsen, Mary Larsen, Diana Malcolmson, Bob Markell, Kia Pedersen, Olive Reich, Joe Reilly, Susan Schrott, Jana Schender, June Shatken, Peter Waldner and Mike Zisser.
