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.
