UNH Law Hosts Exhibits of Hand-Hooked Rugs and Woodblock Prints

Two art exhibits are currently on view at the University of New Hampshire School of Law, Two White St.  The shows feature hand-hooked rugs by members of the White Mountain Woolen Magic New Hampshire Chapter and a solo exhibit of woodblock prints by Matt Brown of Lyme, NH. Both exhibits are open daily to the public, free of charge.

Entitled Rug Hooking Gone Legal, the rug exhibit consists of more than 40 pieces, on display through Saturday, December 18.  An all day event featuring a reception for the artists, vendor tables, and a lecture will be held Saturday, December 4, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Guest lecturer Victor Joos will talk about “Rug Hooking & the Socratic Method” at 11:00 a.m. in Room 200. Participants include Caroline Bailey, Pam Bartlett, Lisa Chaloner, Jon Ciemiewicz, Grace Collette, Sue Englander, Linda Giragosian, Holli Gorrell, Lynda Hadlock, Peg Irish, Fran Irvine, Victor Joos, Deb Kelley, Sue Koehler, Cecile Lefebvre, Diane Luszcz, Carol Murphy, Debra Plummer, Ann Winterling, Theresa Horman, Sue Koehler, Sandy Bandieri, Cyndy Duade and Linda Cooney.
On view through January 8, the prints in the solo exhibition by Matt Brown are created using the traditional Japanese hanga method. This method of printing incorporates brushes and a hand-held baren from multiple hand-carved wood blocks using rice paste, pigments and water. It was the technique used to make the ukiyo-e prints of Hokusai, Hiroshige, and others during the 19th century.
