This gallery is fairly small, but they have some very vibrant folk art wood carvings. The store also has some notecards, rug hooking, and a few other local crafts that you can purchase.

This is a great place to find unique pieces of folk art. William D. Roach is one of a kind and has a rare talent that brings his carvings to life! In the pic is my all time favourite.

Very interesting folk art, in a lovely setting. Lots of great stuff to look at, and owners/artists are on site and happy to talk about their craft.

I loved the paintings and carvings at the Sunset Art Gallery. The use of colour and the sense of fun that comes through the different pieces takes my breath away. The Sunset Art Gallery is a "must see" on the Cabot Trail.

This is such a fun little gallery to visit. The folk art is very creative and quite whimsical! There is also a nice little cafe attached to the gallery. Definitely worth a stop to visit.
