This summer the Alternator Gallery launches GeotagArt.com, a virtual guide to bring hikers in Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park into the art world while they’re enjoying nature.

Using a wireless Internet connection, hikers and cyclists will be able to link to artists’ ideas designed to “stimulate and entertain” visitors while in the park.

“We’re bringing the art out of the gallery so you can explore art and ideas in the places you like to spend time—on the lake, in parks and in the city,” said Heather Martin, with the Alternator Gallery.

Participating artists include members of the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art and the Ullus Collective: Victoria Baptiste, Mariel Belanger, Sue Bizecki, Tracey Bonneau, Jarod Charzewski, Levi George, Warren Hooley, James Masz, John Terbasket, and David Wilson.

Visit GeotagArt.com frequently between June 10 and Oct. 31 to find new locations.
