We and our customers love the central location, and the diverse array of small and interesting independent businesses, of which we are one. The Quinpool business district also features better parking than downtown, and is also a good street for walking. Its position within a primarily residential neighbourhood has always helped to create a sense of belonging, especially for businesses such as ours that have grown up within this community. Its proximity to the Halifax Common and to downtown are added bonuses.
Secord Gallery is one of the longest established galleries and custom framing shops in Atlantic Canada, with roots dating back to 1979 at the same location. We represent many established and emerging contemporary artists, and we are proud to celebrate and promote the excellent work of the artists of this region. Painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and ceramics, with a broad variety of styles and techniques, are all represented in the gallery. We also provide expert custom framing services, and have the largest selection of fine mouldings in the region, a reputation for knowledgeable and creative consultation, and discerning, skilled workmanship.
We love what we do! Operating an art gallery wherein a large number of artists are represented is a big commitment that we take very seriously. We provide an appealing venue for artists, maintain a website that provides images and information for all of our extensive inventory, organize and promote featured artist exhibitions, and are always available to knowledgeably discuss any of the artists’ works. Our custom framing services are also highly developed, with over a hundred years of combined experience, plenty of quality options, a strong sense of design, and a very particular approach to crafting good results.
