Amicus Gallery


Amicus Gallery has a collection of Fine Art & Fine Crafts from the south shore of Nova Scotia. Paula MacDonald, the gallery owner, makes pottery in her studio on site.  Amicus (Latin for friend) Gallery is a gathering of the work of many of my friends. Some were friends before the gallery was 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 work together in a gallery which many have said is the most beautiful on the South Shore.

The gallery and studio are located at 20 Pleasant St in Chester next to the Chester Playhouse. Chester is a beautiful village located on the south shore of Nova Scotia about 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. 902-275-2496

Hours: August: Monday- Saturday 10-5, Sunday 12-4
