Blaine's annual Art Studio Tour is still months away, but tour organizers have announced their final call for artists who want to participate in the event.

The tour is slated for Mother’s Day weekend, May 12 and 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The cost for Blaine, Birch Bay and Custer artists to sign up is $80; $50 if an artist can volunteer for a task.

Artists can sign up in two ways: mail a check for either amount to Cathy Taggett at 3423 Sweet Road, Blaine, WA, 98230. The artist’s name, company name, address and contact phone number should be included.

The same information can also be emailed to Sharon Swanson at If taking the email route, artists must also include a photo of their art, date the fee was paid, and indicate whether they have studio space or would like to share with someone else.
