The Blue Horse Folk Art gallery was built by two Salt Spring Island artists, Anna Gustafson and Paul Burke. This charming space houses their most recent works of art, and is open to the public. Anna's raku vases and lamps are always in stock, along with her other projects, including gorgeous encaustic paintings. Paul's folk art animal sculptures are joined by his narrative works, including the acclaimed Mrs. Drysdale's Circus collection.Come and enjoy the gallery, see the artists in their studios, and enjoy the beautiful gardens.

This is part of the studio tour that is listed on any of the tourist maps. About a 20 minute drive from the Ganges Marina area.

Situated in the northern part of the island, it is an easy drive to visit Paul Burke and his gallery. Well known throughout Vancouver and beyond, you are bound to find that perfect piece for your home. Well worth the drive.
