Port Townsend is a haven for artists, craftsmen,and writers. You can practice your craft, take lessons, or just enjoy the work of others.
The Gallery Walk is a favorite of local residents and visitors alike. Held the first Saturday evening of every month from 5:30 pm 5to 8 pm, it is sponsored by the many galleries and venues and artisans in Port Townsend. You just arrive downtown and start your tour. This is a very short and easy walk, about 2 blocks along the downtown waterfront of the Historic District. The galleries showcase local artists and offer refreshments, information and special displays. It is not unusal to see watercolors by your favorite podiatrist, or sculpture offered by your next door neighbor.
