Cambridge Hooked Rug Exhibit

It's not every day there's a hooked rug exhibit so if you happen to be in the Cambridge, Ma. area in the next couple weeks, plan to see The Passion of Emily Robertson: Contemporary Hooked Rugs in the Sherrill Library at the Episcopal Divinity School on Brattle St. All the rugs are wonderful and span a variety of styles, including some of her garden rugs that are brilliant expressions of light and shadow. Other rugs are downright humorous and thought-provoking. Emily joined our rug hooking group when she moved to Cambridge to pursue another degree. The rug shown is taken from the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild's web site. Emily will be one of the featured artists at the guild's rug show in April. Bravo, Emmy!
