Welcome

Ideally   situated   at   the   corner   of   Main   and   Forest   Streets, one   block   uphill   from   the   Yarmouth   International   Ferry Terminal,   the   historic   Murray   Manor   Art   &   Culture   House is a destination for many reasons. Food    aficionados    can    step    up    to    the    French    Crêperie window   to   order   warm   and   flavourful   sweet   or   savoury crêpes,    complemented    by    our    exclusive    blend    coffee. Specialty    sorbets    and    homemade    ice    cream    are    also lovingly    prepared    on    site.    Enjoy    these    in    our    garden setting, or while exploring our statuary haven.   Art    lovers    are    invited    to    tour    our    Gallery    -    featuring unique   work   of   the   most   renowned   regional   artists   that encompasses      several      mediums.      Talent      from      the fundamental    cultures    of    southwestern    Nova    Scotia    - Mi’kmaq, Acadian and English - is strongly represented. Historians       will       appreciate       the       Regency       Gothic architecture   of   this   heritage   home,   built   in1821   for   Dr. Joseph   Bond,   Yarmouth's   first   doctor.   The   kneeling   (or prayer)     windows     are     particularly     noteworthy.     The property    is    encircled    by    a    thick    hedge    and    sturdy stonewalls.

We   encourage   the   sharing   and   appreciation   of   fine   art in    addition    to    providing    assistance    with    personal growth.   Art   classes,   cultural   events,   workshops   and many   other   exciting   happenings   are   planned   for   the future. The   Murray   Manor   Art   &   Culture   House   was   founded by   Vera   Saeme,   an   art   historian   and   alumna   of   the Florida International University in Miami. Vera    has    lived    in    fourteen    countries,    speaks    six languages   and   has   collected   art   for   the   past   40   years.     She   utilizes   her   international   experience   and   network to   promote   artists   of   the   region   and   to   make   Nova Scotia   a   destination   for   art   and   tourism.   In   addition   to her   art   education,   Vera   has   completed   a   number   of continuing     education     courses,     including     Museum Studies,   Curating   and   Art   as   Global   Business   at   the Sotheby’s Art Institute. Our   hope   for   the   Murray   Manor   Art   &   Culture   House is     that     all     who     visit     will     be     enriched     by     their experience.
