Beyond Rugs! Opens at Farnsworth Museum

Contemporary textile artists using traditional forms of rug making are recognized in a major art Museum exhibit.  The Farnsworth Museum in Rockland Maine opened their second collection focusing on rug hooking.  The current show is up until February 5, 2012.  Visit http://www.farnsworthmuseum.org/ and select Beyond Rugs!for an online catalog.  The curators’ statements address this monumental decision to highlight artists using fabric to portray personal and timely issues. The two images below are works by Susan included in the collection.
