North Hills Revisited

On Sunday afternoon there was a new exhibit opened at ARTsPLACE in Annapolis Royal. The exhibit, which is titled "North Hills Revisited" features artwork created during the North Hills Museum children's art workshops this summer. Children, and a few parents, were able to participate in sculpture, portrait and printmaking workshops led by North Hills Guide Wayne Smith. Wayne, who is the gentleman in the second image of this post, did a wonderful job in teaching new techniques and sharing some of his love of the arts. This was also an excellent way to draw connections between items in the Museum's collection and the artwork created by the children. Many of the pieces were actually inspired by the site itself.

It was a great deal of fun to see the reactions of the young artists when they saw their work on display in a proper gallery setting. There were also a few excited parents at the opening. If you would like to see the work of this young crop of artists, you only have a short time. "North Hills Revisited" will run until October 8. ARTsPLACE is located at 396 St George Street in Annapolis Royal.

All for now,
