Hunterdon County Rug Artisans’ Work Recognized
“THE DOG TEAM TAVERN”: This hand-hooked rug by Lucy Walsh of Clinton has been accepted for inclusion in “2021 Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs 31,” sponsored by Rug Hooking Magazine.
The Hunterdon County Rug Artisans Guild has announced that two of its members have been accepted for inclusion in “2021 Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs 31,” a premier juried collection of the year’s best hand-hooked rugs sponsored by Rug Hooking Magazine.
Included in “Celebration 31” are the following works from its members:
In the Rugs Based on Original Designs category: “Bison,” by Judy Carter of Willow Street, Pa. (this is Carter’s 17th appearance in “Celebration”). Sadly, all who knew Carter grieve her recent passing. She leaves the rug hooking community a lasting legacy of beauty, knowledge, friendship, and talent.
In the Primitive category: “The Dog Team Tavern” by Lucy Walsh of Clinton, N.J. (this is Walsh’s third appearance in “Celebration”). Walsh’s rug honors the Grenfell hooking style and influence.
The mission of the Hunterdon County Rug Artisans Guild is to perpetuate the tradition and art of rug hooking in all its various forms. Visit the Guild’s website (hcrag.com) for information on its programs and activities.
