Penny Lighthall exhibit moves to Halifax

At the Elizabeth Bishop Society of Nova Scotia AGM on 22 June 2019, we opened an exhibit by Truro textile artist Penny Lighthall in our ECHOES OF EB gallery in St. James Church.

“From Pen to Hook: Hand-Hooked Rugs Inspired by the Poetry of Elizabeth Bishop” consists of eight delightful pieces focused on Bishop’s Nova Scotia poems.

In September, Penny will again exhibit these and a dozen more Bishop-inspired rugs at the Central Library in Halifax, N.S. This exhibit opens the evening of 9 September. All are welcome.
