About the Tour

2017 is 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.

Where to begin….Read about the artists. Call a friend and set aside a few hours or the entire weekend for your adventure. Pick up a passport at your first stop; fill it out and pop it in the draw at your last stop for a chance to win one of four valuable gift certificates redeemable for work from one your favourite BSAT artists!* Discover a new piece of art for you or your home, participate in a hand’s-on art experience, and don’t forget to stop for renewal at one of our favourite stops along the way!

Visit 1-4 stops and you are entered to win a $50 prize, 5-8 stops and your entry goes into a $75 prize draw, 9-12 stops – $100 prize draw, and 13-16 gets you into the $150 prize draw!
