The Tour:

The Boreal Shores Art Tour started out in 2017 as the largest visual art tour in Manitoba, and has grown since then with more artists, venues, and special features!
The Tour is designed to be a self-guided and features artists throughout Eastern Manitoba located in both studio and group locations. You can start and end anywhere along the tour. We offer a handy full-colour, professional brochure to help you make decisions of who to see, where to go, and directions for how  to get there. Tour Passports are available at each location for you to pick up, have stamped at each stop, and put in an entry bin at your last stop for an opportunity to win a draw for some great prizes! Art originals, prints, and products are available for purchase throughout the tour.  View pictures from the 2023 Tour at the bottom of this page. 

A dedicated and visionary group of people organize the tour each year – people with a passion for artistic development beyond their own work and a desire to expose the world to all that Eastern Manitoba has to offer in the way of beauty, tourism, lifestyle, and especially ART!

The Artists:

The artists that participate in the Tour are all local – living in the area full time, seasonally, or something in between. Artists’ work must be original and they are required to submit examples to a group of judges prior to being accepted. On the Tour you will find hidden-gem artists that are just emerging to artists that are well established and notable. All of our artists are talented and have their own unique style.
