The Island Arts Experience

This content was prepared by Whidbey Life Magazine (link) Read WLM in print or online for comprehensive and current features, blogs and news concerning Whidbey Island arts & culture and island living!

Plein aire painters and photographers are mad for the island’s bucolic settings on Whidbey's beaches, farms and prairies. This 55-mile-long island is a thriving artists’ haven with stunning views at every turn, and hundreds of visual artists have made their homes in this bucolic environment. A large number of resident glassblowers have given the island the title of "Little Murano", named after the Italian island known for its history of exquisite glass art. In Langley, you can have your own "Murano" experience and blow your own piece of glass art at Callahan's Firehouse. Or get your photography fix with an 'edu-tour' from Whidbey Photo Adventures. If making art is not your style, be sure to visit at least a couple of artist studios during your visit. Check out the Whidbey Art Trail – a year-round circuit of artist studios open to public visits. Observing an artist in action, in their own working environment, is an experience not to be missed!

The galleries that line Langley’s little streets are a reflection of this artists’ haven. Art is so much a part of Langley's character that you'll find all kinds of art hidden in yards, alleys, mounted on buildings and even on phone booths. Be sure to visit a few of Langley's eight art galleries:
