BELLINGHAM - WAST 25th Tour - Meloy Open Studio
Sat & Sun, October 5, 6, & 12,13, 2019, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Celebrating our Whatcom Artist Studio Tour 25th year. Rebecca was one of 18 founders of this fabulous event, back when she had a studio in the 1000 Harris Avenue Hippie Building -- 3rd floor studio where she made art for over a dozen years. The famous building is where the Northwest Passage Newspaper, The Free Store, and the Bellingham Food Coop had previously originated.

As pictured above, Rebecca produced the first brochure along with Richard Bulman, Bev Edie and Peg Shapiro.

Founding WAST artists were Rebecca Meloy, Mary Gregg Byrne, Richard Bulman, Jan Lor, Christopher Pauley, Candy Meacham, Wayne Fullford, T.C. and Lin Robertson, Bill Sargent, Dan Lamb, Michael Costelloe, Teresa Hochhalter, Jeffery Yeager, Bev Edie, Peg Shapiro, and Chris Moench.

In 2002 the tour event changed directions, a bit, and was incorporated by then tour artists into a 501 (c) 3 Non Profit Charitable Corporation. Over the years, the tour has showcased hundreds of diverse local master craftsmen and fine artists. And is still a free county-wide event.

Currently, Allied Arts of Whatcom County will act as an umbrella corporation should the WAST group choose to apply for grants for future events.

As you can suspect, the WAST group is always welcoming of more artists to apply to join the tour and group. It especially desires artists who will jump in and help administer the myriad details required to produce this huge, successful event.

This year, 2019, guests are cordially welcome to visit Rebecca's private home studio to view and purchase her art.
Located within the Columbia Neighborhood, 1/2 mile west of downtown.
Pick up a Whatcom Artist Studio Tour (WAST) brochure, or visit the WAST website to view a map showing over 50 participating local artists with studios.
