Gallery 217 is a showcase of eclectic work by artists along the 217 Highway in Southwest Nova Scotia, including the communities of Long Island, Brier Island, and Digby Neck. Established artists as well as up and coming artists share the space, making a dynamic blend of genres and media. There’s something for everyone!
Opened in August 2018, our gallery is run by the Freeport Community Development Association (FCDA) as a nonprofit, and a portion of our proceeds goes back into our communities – funding social, economic, and cultural programs.
All art is storytelling, and Gallery 217 brings those stories together in a rich volume that speaks about our culture and history here in this very specific geography.
