To Warm the Feet and Please the Eye: Hooked Rugs of Newfoundland and Labrador

Display Date: 
September 30, 2017 - January 14, 2018
Level 3, Atrium

This eye-popping sampling of some of The Rooms loveliest hooked rugs explores the development of the rug-making tradition through time and across regions of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Skilled, colourful and charming examples of basic designs and styles found in the province are displayed including a newly acquired, stunning 6’ x 4’ Grenfell  mat. 

This pop-up exhibit is indeed an eye-pleasing accompaniment to two textile shows on display in the Art Gallery through this autumn: “Home Economics” and “A Going Concern”.
