Art de la Baie brochure launched in June 2020 to promote 18 visual artists from the Clare Acadian Shore.
A new map-brochure invites visitors to discover and support the visual artists of the Clare area. Our artists invite you to discover the beautiful Acadian community of St. Mary’s Bay through its art. Travel the roads of the picturesque St. Mary’s Bay and visit 18 artist galleries or studios to admire the original works of one of our talented artists.
Coordinated by the Municipality of Clare Tourism Services, the project was funded by the Municipality of Clare, community partners (La Société acadienne de Clare, La Fédération régionale des arts et du patrimoine de la Baie and Le Conseil des Arts de la Baie) and 18 participating artists.
