Enjoy 5 galleries of art in a delightful farm setting with seasonal old-fashioned perennial flower gardens. In season the scent of roses fill the air. The barn built in 1845 has a high vaulted ceiling and displays changing light and shadow on the art and studio. The original horse stalls are converted to gallery space and Arthur Rivoire’s studio is now a gallery on the upper part of the property. Views of Pomquet harbour and islands, and the country surroundings are visible from this upper area.
Carol Naveta Rivoire original art works and other noted artists are tastefully displayed in galleries inviting you to browse and soak in the environment. Galleries include antiques and hand-crafted items such as rag rugs which were a home staple of the past.
The gallery is situated on the 300 acre Beaver Dam Farm, just 10 minutes from Antigonish. Chat with Carol Rivoire, artist/owner and founder of the Old Barn Gallery & Decor at Beaver Dam Farm. She is a passionate abstract artist and collector.
It is a true experience to visit the Old Barn Gallery and the art is affordable.
During the summer there will be artist workshops. Check the Facebook page for details.
