Fundy Geological Museum in Parrsboro will host Coastal Lighthouse Rug Hooking, an exhibit developed by the Nova Scotia Art Guild.
The exhibit, which runs Oct. 25 to Nov. 28, displays rugs with coastal themes, most featuring lighthouses.
“The exhibit will be showing around the province throughout the next year and I am pleased that the Fundy Geological Museum is providing the space to show it,” said Dwight Gallagher, vice-president of the Nova Scotia Art Guild. “I hope the residents of Cumberland and Colchester take the opportunity to visit the museum to see the rugs.”
The museum is also organizing several rug-hooking demonstrations and presentations in November.
“Lighthouses are icons of the coastal Nova Scotia shoreline and rug hooking is a popular activity in our communities,” said Tim Fedak, museum director and curator. “The event gives us an opportunity to engage with rug-hooking enthusiasts in the region.”
The exhibit’s official opening will be at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25.
The Fundy Geological Museum, 162 Two Islands Rd., Parrsboro, displays Nova Scotia’s rich geological past and some of the oldest dinosaur bones in Canada. Museum hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
