Arts and Galleries

Many artists and musicians live here and they are happy to share their talent with others.  A big annual event here is the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival held near summer’s end. Actors also perform at the Orcas Grange. Small musical groups put on shows during the summer season. Noon concerts are held at Emmanuel Church each week in July and August.

Those who love art will find a trip to Orcas Island Artworks in Olga intriguing. The Lambiel Museum just outside Eastsound features work by local artist but also art and curiosities from all over.
