“Artistic talent abounds...as does exceptional service”

The Flight Of Fancy
Reviewed 19 April 2014

As a "come from away", moving to Nova Scotia from Saskatchewan, this gallery has become one of my top 10 favourite artistic experiences in this province. Nestled in a beautiful community, away from the highway and city crowds, the beauty and the diversity of the artworks in this gallery is overwhelming. I can spend a great deal of time meandering through both floors, marveling each time at the immense artistic talent of this province and of Atlantic Canada, and yet, when I leave it always seems too soon. Rob, the owner and an artist himself, is always engaging and charming, and he shows obvious enjoyment in letting the artwork reveal itself to the customer....and he never uses any pushy selling techniques. I am looking at the painted stone I bought today and the beauty of the bird on it reminds me of the promise of spring. I will return.

If you are looking for something truly local during your visit to Nova Scotia, I highly recommend a stop at this place. Rob has been tapping the local artists talents for his store for years. You can get a truly one of a kind item here that you will cherish forever. Plenty of places sell mass produced items, this is the place to get a truly authentic Maritime souvenir.

We visited The Flight of Fancy in October. We were very impressed with the quality of work of all the artists and the prices. Rob the gallery owner and one of artists was very friendly and truly loves what he does. One of the best places we visited!

Situated on the hamlet's quiet main street, this outstanding art gallery is but a short car ride from Annapolis Royal, and should top your list of thing's to do in the area. The works include those of some eight or so artists, and include a wide range of paintings, stained glass, and sculptures, covering numerous styles and prices to suit most pockets. The gallery is situated in an historic house on the banks of the Bear River. And finally, do take the time to talk to the gallery owner and artist, Rob Buckland-Nicks; well worth your while
