Artists in this exhibition use rug hooking to document and explore social, emotional and personal topics.
They use a variety of materials, from traditional wool fabric to recycled plastics. Their pieces are made by pulling strips through an open weave fabric to create loops, pile, and texture. Rug hooking is steeped in generations of resourceful, creative, and outspoken makers. These contemporary artisans work the technique’s simple repetitive motions by hand, one loop at a time.
