Welcome to the Maritimes most unique gift shop! I’m Carol Rivoire, owner of Old Barn Gallery Art & Antiques located on our 350 acre Beaver Dam Farm. – My husband, Arthur, who passed away in Dec. of 2013 just short of his 85th birthday, was my partner in the creation of our beautiful gallery. He was a wonderfully creative artist who was breaking new ground in painting up until days before he went to hospital with acute pneumonia. His last works were a series of four paintings depicting the opera Porgy & Bess. – Arthur was my partner in everything we did over our 43 year marriage, including 30+ years importing, breeding and selling Norwegian Fjord Horses. – He was such a presence to me and others. He’ll be sorely missed by many.
OLD BARN GALLERY at Beaver Dam Farm is wonderful setting for Paintings, sculpture, antiques, folk art, garden art, fabric art, found art, vintage quilts and linens, antique hooked rugs, wood turnings, and handmade rustic furniture. We have one of the largest collections of vintage quilts and hooked rugs in the Maritimes .
Opening in June, 2013 for our third season! Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm (other days by chance or appointment). –Old Barn Gallery is REALLY a very old barn (170 years), and is, of course, not heated or insulated. Therefore, we are a seasonal business, opening in June and closing end of October. —- During our season, we’re almost always on the farm so if you stop by and don’t see us, BANG the TRIANGLE, or call me on my cell (352) 459-8537. I’m probably out weeding one of the perennial gardens.
