We will be raffling this rug (to the right) made and donated by Kris McDermet (Thanks Kris!)
The Shelburne Museum will concurrently have an exhibiton of Patty Yoder’s work at the Pizzagalli Art and Education Building so you will be able to make the short drive to Shelburne to see it while at the hook-in. Many of you knew Patty but many new hookers may not know about her. She was one of our guild Presidents and very instrumental in bringing the Hooked in the Mountain Show to the Shelburne Museum. She is much missed. Jon Ciemiewicz has donated a card table Patty made to our guild (photo below) and we will be auctioning it at the hook-in!
Here is what the museum says about Patty’s work “Bringing together the artist’s first and last works alongside preparatory sketches and other ephemera, Hooked on Patty Yoder surveys the 13 -year career of American rug hooker Patty Yoder (1943-2005). Best known for her beguiling Alphabet of Sheep (2003), Yoder conceived of her designs as “paintings with wool to be hung and enjoyed as art.” Exacting attention to color, composition, and technique, paired with Patty’s penchant for high visual standards and whimsical designs, truly sets her work as a new standard within the field of American textile arts.” Museum admission is $10.
