Today in Island History
1855 Donald MacDonald of Tracadie, an intensely unpopular proprietor, is shot down by unknown assailants as he leaves the gate of his estate. "So detested was he," an English visitor later records, "that several persons passed by without rendering him any assistance." MacDonald survives.

Art Begets Art: Hooked Mats and the Art that Inspired Them
To October 6, 2017

Like other artists and craftspeople, rug hookers take their inspiration from many sources. In this exhibition, 22 artist and artisans submitted work to be used by rug hookers as inspiration for hooked mats or other hooked items. What resulted was wonderful. To add icing to the cake, five rug hookers offered mats from their original designs as inspiration to artists. The result is 27 pairs of visual arts work.
