Tom and Peter are not only immensely talented artists, but are charming, funny, and delightful people. Visiting their studio - situated in a remodeled, two story barn - was the best part of our trip. Their art is eye-catching and full of unexpected details, sometimes...More

Owner was very friendly, beautiful property, flowers all around, and of course, folk art everywhere. It is worth taking a walk around and enjoying all the bright colours. Lots of folk art available as well as cards.

Stopped as I was driving by. Love the colours of the artwork, but not a lot to my personal taste which is a good thing considering the prices.

Cannot say enough positive things about these two. Tom and Peter make the drive worth it every time with their wonderful genuine love of people and stories, let alone their unique collection of cards, art and furniture. Do not miss this spectacular gallery.

What a wonderful gallery to explore. Tom Alway and Peter Blais continue to create wildly colorful, whimsical and creative works that reflect this corner of the Maritimes. And their sense of humor alone makes a trip worthwhile. I love the latest print I bought, Lunenburg...More

We stopped in a a gray day and stepped into sunshine & colour. The art is so colourful. Both artists are very charming & welcoming. They have very different styles but both very talented.

No Bubble Glass here at Maritime Painted Saltbox, but you could try Mariner Craft also in Petite Riviere. They list sagged bubble glass as one of their items produced. Information about Mariner Craft can be found if you... More
