Wallowa Valley Art Studio Tours

The breathtaking scenery of Wallowa County provides an inspiring backdrop for the area’s many local artists. Studio tours allow you to enjoy a behind-the-scenes view of the creative process in a variety of mediums, including bronze, ceramics, paint and textiles. Meet the artists, hear their stories and step inside their workspace to see the tools and techniques they use.

Wallowa Valley Studio Tours are a self-guided year-round activity. If you are planning an outdoor adventure or just time to relax and enjoy scenic Wallowa Lake, a tour with one or more of the local artists is a unique way to add flavor and fun to your stay.

Wallowa Valley Studio Tours are by appointment only. An E-mail address and/or phone number is provided for each of the participating artists (listed below).
