Not your Grandmother’s Rugs

August 12 at 5:00pm

You are formerly invited to attend the opening night of the exhibition entitled Not Your Grandmother’s Rugs by fiber artist Mrs. Mary James on Wednesday August 12th at 5:00 pm. This exhibit will be in place until September 4, 2015.

Mrs. James will present her collection of hooked rugs, created using the traditional Nova Scotia technique. Born out of the necessity to keep floors warm, these rugs were originally made from strips of cloth from unusable wool clothing which were pulled through recycled burlap potato bags. Mrs. James continues to follow the tradition of rug making with repurposed materials, which today has become an art form that can be placed on a table, a chair seat, or a floor, or simply hung on the wall. “They are not our Grandmothers rugs but every rug I make is a link back to their courage, strength and love of family”.
