About KAST: Kirkland Artist Studio Tour

KAST began in 2004 when a small band of artists decided it was time Kirkland had its own artist studio tour. The artists open their studios once a year on Mothers Day weekend to give the public a rare opportunity to see artists create in their studios. Kirkland Arts Center took on the management of the tour in 2008 as part of new programming initiatives designed to support the arts within the community. 2017 is KAST’s 14th year.


A wide range of artwork will be on display and available for purchase among the various studios: Jewelry, Glass Art, Paintings, Photography, Garden Art, Sculpture, Furniture, Fiber Arts, and more! Grab a map and do the Tour. Search the artist pages of this website to further inform you about tour artists, see additional images of their works, and to find out which studios will be offering artist demonstrations throughout the weekend.
