AGNS: Hooked Rugs, Making Maquettes, New Honorary Governors


Playing with Scale

Carl Zimmerman’s photographs appear to capture the grandiosity of historic architecture. In fact, none of the buildings he photographs exist.

In this latest Studio from Home activity, make an architectural maquette inspired by the buildings Zimmerman created.

Hooked Rugs

Visit The Very Mention of Home and take away your own rug hooking kit.

Shop in person or online for Deanne Fitzpatrick’s beginner kits, including the design inspired by the exhibition.

Honorary Governors Appointed

The Board of Governors for the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has appointed Carol Dodds and Robbie Shaw as Honorary Governors.

We’re grateful to Carol and Robbie for their contributions as volunteers, supporters, and champions for the arts in Nova Scotia. Read the full release.
