“We love West Central and want it to stay quirky, funky, fun and diverse,” said Mardis Nenno, whose pottery studio will be a stop on the tour. “We thought that opening our doors a little bit to the rest of the city, so that people can get a feel for our neighborhood, and where our artists work and live, will highlight that.”

On Nov. 29, more than a dozen artists will be stoking fires for visitors during the fifth annual Slightly West of Spokane Artists Studio Tour. Unlike the feel of a mall during the holiday season, visitors will be welcomed to shop at their leisure while enjoying a cup of something warm and perhaps a bowl of homemade chili. There are seven stops on the self-guided tour in the Medical Lake-Cheney area: the Cheney Historical Museum, the Cheney Library, and five homes with active art studios. Items for sale will include turned tools, stained glass, photography, paintings, fabric art, jewelry, cigar box guitars, garden statues, fabric coiled baskets and functional pottery.

It looks like the warm weather is going to hold out for at least a few more days, which makes this the perfect weekend for taking part in the 10th annual Town and Country Studio Tour. This artistic trek spans the entire city, with eight different art studios (half on the North Side of town, half on the south) offering the work of various local and regional artists for your viewing pleasure. You can see everything from painting to photography to pottery to sculpture, and the best part? It’s free.

On Sept. 15 and 16, six artists on the South Hill will open their homes to the public during the ninth annual Spokane Town and Country Studio Tour. At each stop on the self-guided tour, artists will be exhibiting their wares in a variety of media including painting, pottery, photography, wearable art, and sculpture. Four of the studios have been on the map before, but two are opening their doors for the first time. “Opening my home studio just sounded like a great way to meet other artists and to share what I love about art,” said watercolorist Joy Gruenewald. “Spokane has an incredible arts community.”

Little Spokane site for artist studio tour

Spokane and Spokane Valley have something to boast about; a stunning river that flows through like a vein, its banks ripe with history where men and women settled to benefit from the flowing abundance. Now a metropolis, the area often forgets the river; its sound lost to traffic. Still, it flows with the help of three major tributaries: Chamokane Creek, Hangman Creek and the Little Spokane River.
