David Wright relocated to Nova Scotia’s south shore several years ago from wonderful Toronto’s ever expanding roar.

We are privileged to be representing David here in the Maritimes and have a very impressive selection of his work hanging in our shop at present.

We will be opened two Saturdays this October, the 17th and the 24th, 10:00 – 4:00 all welcome.
