Have been many times to Peggy's Cove and only found the gallery open once. That one time was wonderful to see the work of Mr. deGarthe who was so talented. Wish I had bought something when his wife used to sell out of the fish shed on the Cove.

If you are an art buff , it's a place you need to see. The artist has carved a subject than did a painting of the same scene. I found this by accident many years ago while staying in Peggy's Cove. He also painted the church as well.

The museum and the monument are wonderful tributes to one of Nova Scotia’s best known marine artists. We really enjoyed our visit and the opportunity to view a few of the artists wonderful works. The young lady working at the centre deserves a special mention; she was very friendly and knowledgeable and her interaction with the other visitors was extremely positive.

Short story.. Inlaws regret not visiting Peggies Cove 30 years ago and my wife was bound and determined to not repeat that error. We really loved the village and lighthouse and wanted to get her mom something special.. the pewter is top shelf and the variety of quality artisans is evident after just a few minutes in this shop..

We knew Mr. deGarthe and his wife personally and are very pleased to see a memorial to his work. Where better to have it the in the place he loved and was the inspiration for much of his work.

While walking around the village, you might stumble upon this amazing art piece. It’s just on the side of the road, with little fanfare. Take some time to read the history of the outdoor piece and look carefully at the humanity he carved.
A nice surprise as I knew nothing about it.

Worth stopping by to view this handcarved monument in a front yard.
Read the informative plaques for the story, and spend a few moments in quiet reflection.

DeGarthe was a wonderful artist. The one thing that I have to say is that the staff could be more interactive and informative. But all in all good experience.

It was deathly quiet in the gallery. I don't think parents with noisy kids would feel very comfortable. The painting are certainly an acquired taste. A bit too crude in many respects. The sculptures were much better and worth a close look.

Definitely worth a look many beautiful works of art including many great sculptures. Small quaint old home converted into an art gallery. By donation only so stop in and see some great local art by a great Canadian artist.
