Rug hooking talk and demonstration

Rug hooking artist June Myles of Redding will give a gallery talk about her exhibition One Loop at a Time: June Myles’ Hooked Art at the Wilton Historical Society on Thursday, Oct. 1, from 4 to 5:30, in the Sloan House Gallery. Myles will also give a demonstration of how she hooks her artwork, and will talk about her creative process.
The pieces in the exhibition — rugs, wall hangings, and pillows — are alive with color, texture and movement. As the artist says, they are “painted in wool.” The unusual subject matter — intriguing “men I’ve never met”, and a zoo of appealing animals, from anteaters to armadillos, turtles to goats — is enhanced by her deft use of collage techniques.
Her hooked art has been exhibited widely across Connecticut and in Maine and West Virginia since 1990.
One Loop at a Time: June Myles’ Hooked Art will be on display through Oct. 3.
Registration is requested as space is limited. Admission is free for historical society members, $10 for non-members.
