August 18 & 19, 2018,  10am – 5pm

2017 was the inaugural year for the Boreal Shores Art Tour – a free, road-trip worthy, self-guided art tour,  featuring artist studios, artist group locations and galleries scattered throughout the beautiful and diverse Boreal forest and shore regions of Eastern Manitoba. From the eastern shores of Lake Winnipeg through the Winnipeg River System to the Whiteshell Provincial Park, the tour showcases artists from diverse communities throughout the region who love to explore all aspects of visual art.

Artist applications for the 2018 tour are now closed.  If you are an artist and would like to apply to be part of the 2019 Tour, please submit an application after the end of August 2018 on this website.  All applicants must be juried first before being accepted so you will also have to email us 5 images of your work.

If you are interested in driving the Tour this coming August – you can start off now by reading about the 2018 Artists, most of whom have returned from the 2017 tour. Applications have been approved, and the 2018 list has been published along with their biographical information, images of their work and their contact information as well.
