Events 2019


I’m going to be in Italy for 6 weeks sculpting February 25 – April 15 so plan your studio visits before or after this timeframe.

The Annual Freeland Open House will take place Saturday, June 15. We’ll be open 11-4. Here’s the press release:


It’s time for the Ninth Annual Open House at Freeland Art Studios

Come and see what’s new at the Freeland Art Studios 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 15. Sue Taves returned from sculpting in Italy and her stone and sculpture shipment arrived at the studio on May 23. We’ve added a new permanent member to our studios. He is Matt Monforte who joined the studio last fall. He’s primarily painting and drawing in his space, mostly figurative work. We’ll also be joined by a couple of guest artists who have been using the studio space intermittently. So come over and meet Therese Kingsbury and Benjamin Mefford. You can also hear about Woody Morris’s “Legend Bench” project that he just installed in city of Kenmore at the north end of Lake Washington. And you find out what everyone else has been up to over the winter. 

Freeland Art Studios is a large studio space, over 7000 sq. feet, that houses 12 separate artist workspaces. Artists at the Freeland Art Studios work in a variety of different media including: stone, metal, clay tile, jewelry, mosaics, cast glass, bronze, wood, resin paintings, painting, mixed media and water features. Artists are: Penelope Crittenden, Carol Rose Dean, Therese Kingsbury, Benjamin Mefford, Matt Monforte, Woody Morris, Sara Owens, Karen Renz, Sue Taves, Declan Travis, Lane Tompkins, and Lloyd Whannell.

Many of the artists will be at the studio for the open house and will have completed art for sale as well as new works in process. We hope you will stop by to see what’s new and enjoy some light refreshments.

You can find us at 1660 Roberta Avenue off of Harbor Ave in Freeland (behind Whidbey Island Bank and the WAIF Thrift store.)
