about Artworks

 

A treasured Orcas Island destination for visitors and locals The Artworksalike, the Artworks offers one of the finest selections of local art and crafts in the San Juan Islands. We represent over forty Orcas Island artisans working in pottery, sculpture, jewelry, glass, wood, metal, paintings, prints, wearable art, fiber and more. Established in 1981, our gallery is one of the oldest artist cooperatives in the country.

It is owned and operated by the artists themselves, which gives visitors a unique opportunity to meet one or more of them on any given day.

The Artworks’s permanent location is one and a half miles East of Moran State Park in the hamlet of Olga, a short walk from the boat-accessible Olga public dock. It is housed in a 1930′s strawberry packing plant that is on the Washington Heritage Register of Historic Places.

Main St entryCurrently, however, due to last year’s fire, we are located in what used to be the old Orcas Island Library across from Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Main Street in Eastsound.    

This is our home until the Olga building is completely    renovated, sometime in the Spring of 2015.
