Cool, sophisticated, refined art works by the proprietor and other local and regional artists. I loved the cow. There are so many good pieces in this gallery, too many to take home. Choices must be made. But it is all fun fun fun.

Neat place to stop on a day of gallery browsing around the Margaree/Belle Cote/Cheticamp area. Some of the art is really "out there", but that makes the visit all the more fun. Paintings, photographs, jewelry, wood art...you can find it all here!

We were drawn by the sign for this gallery. There was a lot of very interesting art on display. Our nieces bought a painting. The owner was very friendly and talkative and we learned a lot from him.
