We are located at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, an international arts facility with 178 acres of field and forest and a fabulous indoor facility.


Located just north of Canning, Nova Scotia, the Centre is easily accessible. It is 1.5 hours from the Halifax International Airport and close to a vibrant community which supports the gallery and community programs, yet secluded enough for a true retreat experience, whether for the artist colony or the overnight summer arts camps.
