Welcome to Amicus Gallery

Amicus Gallery has a collection of Fine Art & Fine Craft, predominantly made in Nova Scotia, and features the pottery of former gallery owner & founder, Paula MacDonald.

Amicus means "friend" in Latin, and the gallery is a gathering of the work of many friends. Some were friends before the gallery opened in 1996. Others have become friends through the interaction of carrying their work. It is our pleasure to run a gallery which many have said is the most beautiful gallery on the South Shore.

Located in the heart of the charming seaside village of Chester next to the Chester Playhouse. Chester is less than an hour west of Halifax.

ONLINE GALLERY AND SHIPPING: If you can not make it to the gallery but would like to purchase artwork you see on the website, please call or e-mail us. We can easily arrange to ship the art to you.
