Surfing the Ironing Board – Hooked Mats of Laura Kenney

May 20, 2016 - July 10, 2016

- Free

Hooking her original designs onto burlap, Truro-based fibre artist, Laura Kenney shares the antics and insights of her fictitious red-headed character Judy. This new series of 30 hand-hooked rugs displayed as wall art, offer a humourous, colourful and quirky narrative highlighting the daily struggles we can all identify with, as women, as Nova Scotians, or as fellow humans challenged by our modern world. How easily we could each slip on Judy’s slimming black dress and mount our ironing board to “surf”, given half the chance.

Opening Reception May 19th at 6:00 p.m.

Hook-In – Friday June 3, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Bring your own rug & materials. Some supplies available for newbies. RSVP 902-492-2522 / info@craft-design.ns.ca

Artist will be dropping in randomly during the run of the exhibit to chat & hook. Check website for updates.
