Arts Circuit

The Magdalen Islands are brim with creative minds, and their ever-growing numbers make us wonder - how could so small a land give birth to such a wide variety of artists and artisans, and attract so many others?

Bring the question directly to the artists, and you'll get a breadth of answers. You'll hear how the life on the Islands stirs up this awe-inspiring force. We're blessed every day with nature's masterpieces, from the constant presence of the sea, with her moods and her salty notes, to the many dances and reflections of the light bathing the scenery with raw, effervescent colours. For many of the makers born here, creativity grew in proportion to the vastness of their childhood playground - they know how wide-open spaces can favour the bold, the expressive, the artist.

On our archipelago, a small bunch of boutiques, studios, and art galleries have gathered their stories to shine a light on the local artistic diversity. With their passion and expertise in visual arts and fine crafts in common, the artists and artisans of the Circuit des Arts will have you tour the seascapes of the Magdalen Islands from one curated collection of unique creations to the next.

By getting to know them, you'll see how these creative minds draw inspiration from their surroundings, in the hope of sharing some of the Islands' beauty with the rest of the world. So, until the day you'll walk through their door, or to help you revive the fond memories of your last visit, we offer you these stories as an open window onto the lives of these talented Islanders and their breath-taking environment.
