2011 Art Hits the Wall

2011 Art Hits The Wall was held  at the Rossignol Cultural Centre in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. The theme of this art show was “Tides of Time”.    Every piece of artwork on display illustrated creativity in how the theme was interpreted.

This fascinating exhibition featured the work of Atlantic Canadian quilters and rug hookers.    Special certificates of appreciation from the Hon. Darrell Dexter, Premier of Nova Scotia, were presented to Doris Eaton and to Polly Greene at the opening of Art Hits The Wall to recognize the role they played in its creation of this show held every two years.

The next Art Hits the Wall event will be in 2013.  The theme for this show is entitled “Kaleidoscopes”.
