4801 HWY 215, Summerville, West Hants, NS

Ditch Flower Gallery is a seasonal exhibition and workshop space for local art and crafts in Summerville, Nova Scotia. The vision is to have artwork featured and workshops offered by Cara Sawka, Rory MacDonald, as well as guest instructors. Open to the public for the first time in 2019 the inaugural exhibition included unique pillows, ceramics, stuffed animals, ironworks, painting, cards, prints, and pretty things…made by (mostly) local artists. Please check back here for updates.

Update July 2020:

The gallery is adhering to current health restrictions as articulated by the province of Nova Scotia. The layout of the gallery/ building space makes it simple to have only one group of visitors from the same group at a time…a wonderful space with artwork for contemplation if you need to get out and enjoy a calm and lovely experience in this beautiful charming building.
