The Gallery

As you travel Nova Scotia consider a stop at the Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery located at 3654 Route 366 (the Sunrise Trail). We are a cooperative of Cumberland County artists, potters, and writers and have on display original works in many media:  acrylics, pastels, watercolours, ink, photography, and clay, matted prints, pottery, a collection of fine cards, and books by Harry Thurston, one of Atlantic Canada’s better known authors.

Since 2010 the Gallery has hosted classes. Our artists offer small group and private lessons in sketching, drawing, water color, and acrylic painting, etching, pottery, and writing. We also have visiting artists who provide specialized courses and instruction. Exhibitions for visiting artists, book launches by local authors, and other special events are scheduled throughout the season. Check our website and calendar to keep abreast of activities, workshops, and classes scheduled for the coming season. To receive our newsletter of upcoming events and workshops, email us at

We opened in May and will remain open the first few weeks of October, through the weekend of the Art Across The Marsh Studio Tour. Please check other pages on this website to learn about the types of Events, Classes, Artists, and Workshops we will be scheduling next summer.
