Welcome to Amicus Gallery

Amicus Gallery has a collection of Fine Art & Fine Craft. The work in the gallery is all handmade predominantly in the Maritime provinces.  Paula MacDonald, the gallery owner, makes the pottery in her studio at the Gallery.

Amicus (Latin for friend) Gallery is a gathering of the work of many of her friends. Some were friends before the gallery opened in 1996. Others have become friends through the interaction with them in carrying their work. It is my pleasure to have brought all this together in a gallery which many have said is the most beautiful gallery on the South Shore.

The gallery and studio are located in the heart of the beautiful village of Chester next to the Chester Playhouse. Chester is less than an hour west of Halifax.

Amicus Gallery is open year round. Winter hours are shortened, so please call before coming at that time of year.
