The Boreal Shores Art Tour has been cancelled for the 2021 year.    We felt that the uncertainty of the times made it too difficult to predict if group locations would be allowed in August and many artists were not comfortable having the public in their homes when the vaccine rollouts have been a bit slower than hoped.    The BSAT brochure has been a cornerstone of the Tour for people to know what they might find and where and we just cannot afford to print such a piece only to have the Tour cancelled by Provincial regulations.

2021 would have been the fourth event for the Boreal Shores Art Tour – a free, road-trip worthy, self-guided art tour,  featuring artists at their studios and or group locations 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.

The artists in the 2019 Tour were challenged to create a spiral themed work.  The public were asked to vote for their People’s Choice of the  Spiral works – one winner for each of the 3 regions – North, Central and South.    The top row of photos shows the 3 winners.    Underneath are more photos taken during the 2019 Tour weekend:
