The Most Beautiful Art Tour in Alberta

September 20 @ 10:00 am - September 21 @ 5:00 pm

Wondering how to make the most of Alberta’s official Month of the Artist? Explore a scenic backroads route for the The Most Beautiful Art Tour in Alberta! Leighton Art Centre is the perfect start or end point for the day.
The Tour is a self-guided journey among some of the best art destinations in the rolling foothills of our beautiful province. We are a community collective, including art galleries as well as an insider’s look at private studios that open their doors to the public especially for these all-access events. What will you find? So much inspiration! Stop by any – or all – of the 6 venues for inspiring art, creativity, and beautiful handmade one-of-a-kind gifts.
Discover eclectic collections of local art, books and gifts in historical buildings; original nature-inspired acrylic paintings; a centuries-old method of paper decoration in a studio with one of the region’s best views, and glassblowing demonstrations by award-winning glass artists.
