Orcas Island Artworks, Olga

#3 of 9 in Shopping in San Juan Islands
Art Gallery · Hidden Gem · Shopping
A treasured Orcas Island destination for visitors and locals alike, the Artworks offers one of the finest selections of local art and crafts in the San Juan Islands. We represent over forty Orcas Island artists and crafts people, working in pottery, sculpture, jewelry, glass, wood, paintings, prints, wearable art, fiber and more. Established in 1981, our gallery is one of the oldest artist cooperatives in the country. As the gallery is owned and operated by the artists themselves, there is the unique opportunity of meeting one or more of them on any given day.

Artworks has returned to their permanent location in the historic Strawberry Barreling Building in Olga village at the corner of Olga Road and Point Lawrence Road.

The Catkin Café is located in the same building.
