The Pinawa Art Gallery is an initiative of Pinawa Art 211 Inc., a local not-for-profit art group founded in 1989 by artists of the town wishing to develop and share their talents. The art group of today has expanded its reaches to include artists from numerous municipalities in and around the area. This active little group consists of many award winning artists, promotes art education and always has a community project in the works.

Tarantism Dance Company (TDC) is a dance program located in Beausejour, Manitoba. Currently offering classes to children ages 2-8 and adults ages 19+ out of community facilities. Our goal is to provide the highest quality dance education possible in a convenient location for our rural community and it’s surrounding area as well as to instill a love for the arts in all students while maintaining a safe, professional and nurturing environment.
We are also committed to supporting our communities and their residents through many different initiatives. Our faculty is comprised of talented dancers and teachers from Beausejour and its surrounding areas thus making for a team who is passionate about supporting their hometowns and their residents both young and young at heart.
At TDC our hope is that all our students take away four things from our program each and every day. A high quality dance education, a love for the art of dance, a love for their community and the knowledge that they can support their communities each and every day in many different ways.
We are currently organizing the 2019 Whiteshell Winter Arts Festival Itinerary!

Pinawa’s Arlene Bohn had an idea - the creation of a community event that combined our thriving arts community with the many winter activities available in our beautiful town. A committee was formed, the community mobilized to make it happen and the inaugural Whiteshell Winter Arts Festival was born. With the 2018 event ‘in the books’, the committee has bravely come together again to organize this wonderful winter event a second time!
The 2019 Whiteshell Winter Arts Festival showcases art of all kinds through displays, demonstrations and workshops taking place at a variety of locations throughout our town. There will be many different workshops and activities to choose from, such as clay sculpting, photography, puppet making, snow painting and much more! Local authors will showcase their work, offer writing workshops and perform readings. Our performing artists will be returning to entertain at the Festival Dinner and Brunch, and will provide lovely background music as you explore the work of our local artists at the Art Show and Sale at the Wilderness Edge Retreat and Conference Centre.
When you are done experiencing and enjoying the art, you can pop outside and enjoy the many winter activities organized by our wonderful volunteers, such as curling events, cross country skiing and snow shoeing. Your kids will love our tobogganing hill, snow sculpture workshops, as well as our community Bonfire with S’mores! We have something to accommodate everyone, no matter your interest, no matter your age! Stay tuned for the exciting updates and artist highlights leading up to the festival!
