Potter Danielle Sawada and rug hooker Laura Kenney will be featured in the exhibit ‘Dirty Girl & the Hooker – Expressions in clay and wool.’ An opening reception will be held Feb. 20 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
Together, the two artists have an intriguing, vibrant exhibit.
Sawada creates one-of-a-kind functional pottery wares, which are both beautiful and practical. Some are modern and some are traditional, and all are a treasure to use and a pleasure to view.
A self-taught potter, Sawada has learned many ways to “accept, hide and beautify the wonks” along the way, she said.
Kenney is a fibre artist who uses the traditional Nova Scotia craft of rug hooking to create original hand-hooked, hand-dyed rugs and wall hangings.
She uses primarily second-hand wool clothing to create her rugs, which are a link to the past and a hope for the future direction of rug hooking.
