Owner description: We sell original art that is mostly local - much of the art is the work of art/owner Carol Naveta Rivoire. Carol's passion is CONTEMPORARY ART, and her paintings are full of all the elements necessary - pleasing colors, texture (lots of texture), balanced composition, line, value, and emotion. The galleries are located at beautiful Beaver Dam Farm in the village of Pomquet, 12 min. from Antigonish Town. One gallery is in a former stable, and the other in the former carriage house. -- Very charming and fun! There's a lovely terrace with seating. Have a cup of coffee and enjoy the flowers and container vegetables surrounding the terrace. There are 500 old-fashioned rose bushes on the farm plus huge perennial gardens. -- Drive EAST on the highway towards Cape Breton. EXIT 35B (Monks Head Rd.) Folow OLD BARN GALLERY signs to first road on left (Melanson Rd.)

We fell in love with this charming place. Happened upon it from a sign. She had just opened 5 weeks ago. Lovely gardens and a very talented artist painting right there on the premises. She has Norwegian Fjord horses too so we spent a good half hour taking in the charm of this place and all left with happy lovely reasonably priced unique gifts. I love my wool soft blanket spun from local sheep. The smell and feel take me back to a gorgeous simpler place and lifestyle. Antigonish is the closest town and is lovely. DOn't miss visiting here and there's a great beach nearby, Pomquet. Enjoy!

Since our farm and business (Old Barn Gallery & Design) is a bit off the beaten track, I wanted to make clear that we're located in the village of Pomquet. We're 10 min. from the university town of Antigonish heading east towards Cape Breton Island. -- We were surprised and certainly pleased that a visitor posted on Trip Advisor, and since we are truly old fashioned folks, we'd never heard of this marvelous service. Thank you Trip Advisor, and many thanks to the lady who posted the review.
