Bear River

Our Story

Hello and thank you for visiting our website. We are Carmen and David Chamberland, owners of Blue Mind Gallery. David is originally from Sherbrooke, Quebec, where we lived prior to Bear River. Myself, (Carmen), I am from Penticton, British Columbia.

In February 2013, we visited Nova Scotia. In June, 2013, we moved here. Why? Sometimes you just want a new adventure, and this seemed like the perfect spot. It was a “blank canvas” where we could create our own little paradise and experience a blue state of mind.

Bear River is, for us, a very special place.

A lot has happened here…

First of all, we bought a home in Bear River. (The photo below is a little outdated – by about 100 years – but you get the idea).

Second of all, we got married here.

Third of all, we adopted our cat here. Actually…he adopted us. Likely the steak and seafood chowder David fed him helped to influence his decision. He has obviously made himself at home…maybe a little too much.

Lastly, on June 1, 2018, we opened Blue Mind Gallery here.

What can I say? Life is good.

We wish you all the same happiness that we have been so privileged to find here, in Bear River, our little village on stilts.
