Those looking to explore Saskatchewan will want to mark June 26th and 27th on their calendar.

The west central arts community is hosting a self guided tour called the River and Rail ArtVenture that weekend, it covers 280 kilometres and 26 venues in ten different communities.

Co-organizer Janet Akre, said a wide variety of artists will have their work on display and be their to answer questions.

“We’ve got quite a few that are painters, we’ve got potters, we have a variety of fabric arts as well, everything from alpaca to quilts, we also have a winery on the tour,” Akre said.

Akre says there is even a live apiary on the tour.

She recommends taking two days if you want to see everything.

Co-organizer and participant Susan Robertson said the amount of  creators in west central Saskatchewan is substantial, and they’re happy with the response.
