August 18 & 19, 2018
10am to 5pm
Creativity runs deep in Eastern Manitoba and inspiration flows at every turn. From the surreal east shore beaches of Lake Winnipeg, through the Winnipeg River System to the rugged lake country of the Whiteshell, join us on a tour of art and landscapes as artists across this beautiful region open their homes and studios to share their world with you.
In 2017, 600 people traveled on the Boreal Shores Art Tour route making an average of 5 stops each. There were 34 artists located at 16 stops with 4 group locations spread along the way. 27 people made it to every stop – an accomplishment that can only be done by devoting the entire weekend to driving the route!
The artists sold $28,000 worth of art on those 2 days and we know that art was going to all over Canada as well as the UK, Germany, France and USA. Less than half of our visitors were from the Eastman region itself while the rest came from all parts of Manitoba as well as every province from BC to Quebec and the Maritimes. We also had visitors from Thailand, Hong Kong, Germany and the UK.
2018 promises to be even better as we have already heard from so many artists who did not apply last year but will be applying for 2018.
