Main & Station began as a project to save a derelict building in the seaside community of Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. Although the building is still undergoing some work, in June 2013 Main & Station re-opened the doors that had been closed 43 years earlier and it is now host to a secondhand bookshop, an art gallery, a café, workshops, seminars, community events and Artist residencies. Main & Station & the Nonesuch Residencies are 100% privately funded. We do not apply for or receive government grants. The Nonesuch mission is to have fun and to encourage artistic activity, interdisciplinary collaboration, and community involvement. Travel can be quite a stimulus to ideas and creativity. The residency program allows participants the opportunity to work creatively in one or more new environments. Support to the community is via arts programming, seminars, collaborations, small venue presentations, and partnerships.

What a pleasant find! I wandered in around mid-day (I think they are open 10-2ish) and had a delicious press of coffee in a comfortable chair with a friendly dog drowsing nearby, surrounded by books and an eclectic collection of arts, crafts and findings. There was soup on the stove and it smelled really good. The folks at the next... More
