CANCELLED. 2021 Methow Valley Home Tour: “ARTful Living in Twisp”

Aug 7, 2021

(The Balsam House, designed by Ray Stevens and built by Big Valley Builders, is part of the 19th annual Methow Valley Home Tour on August 7, 2021.)

Due to local fires, this event has been canceled.

The Confluence Gallery is pleased to present its 19th annual Methow Valley Home Tour on August 7, 10am-4pm.  This year’s theme is “ARTful Living in Twisp.”  The Tour features eight homes centered in the art community of Twisp and the surrounding area.

“Whether you are crossing town limits or entering someone’s home, the presence of art is an unrivaled method of greeting and engagement.  It immediately sends the message that this place is unique, you are welcome here, and we care,” says local artist Perri Howard.

Close to 100 visual artists, including painters, sculptors, potters and jewelers, make the Twisp community an exciting expression of artful living. The artistry and craftsmanship of local architects and builders are evident in the houses featured this year. An exquisitely designed and executed cabin overlooking Twisp River Valley, and a sustainably built home perched on the Methow River in Twisp, are examples of the creativity that flows throughout the Methow Valley.

“A wander through Twisp will give you a taste of the incredibly talented artists calling the Methow Valley home. We are excited to emphasize the connection between art and ‘home’ by highlighting local artists alongside local builders and architects in this year’s Home Tour,” says Kaileah Akker, Executive Director of Confluence Gallery

The 2021 Home Tour is also proud to showcase one of the nine homes designed, built and made possible by the Methow Housing Trust over the last two years.  These carefully designed and highly efficient homes are the first to address the severe shortage of affordable housing in the Methow Valley.

“Methow Housing Trust is honored to showcase our energy efficient, affordable homes in this year’s Home Tour. Designed by CAST Architecture and built by Methow Valley Homes,” says Danica Ready, Executive Director of Methow Housing Trust.
