Visual Art Series

When a person is travelling around Cape Breton Island, it is as though one is immersed in a painting. It is no wonder creativity is a prevalent part of our culture, and the Visual Arts are no exception. The series offers a wide variety of events for art enthusiasts, skilled artists, collectors, and hobbyists. It is composed of exhibitions, demonstrations, artisans’ tours, plein air paint outs, and workshops and is hosted by local galleries, guilds, and community art organizations.
