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.

If you have time to only visit one gallery in Cheticamp, it must be this one. Bill Roach is a true folk art carver, and his sense of humour and imagination shows through in his work.
