Kathy Jablonowski at Connelly Gallery: Hooked on Rugs
Artist Kathy Jablonowski has recently returned to the Binghamton, NY area bringing with her an exciting collection of uniquely designed hooked rugs, each showing her extraordinary talent for blending colors to create one-of-a-kind works of art.
Kathy has studied with Ramona Cann, Polly Minick and Beverley Mulcahy, all noted rug hookers from various parts of the country, and uses wool from many different sources. Using an old art form, not the more common latch-hook style, she often incorporates family items into the finished piece, creating a rug that is a piece of family history.
Ms. Jablonowski's exhibit, Hooked on Rugs, opens at the Connelly Gallery, 205 State Street, Binghamton, NY 13901 on Friday November 5, 2010 from 6:00-9:00 pm as part of the First Friday Art Walk for November and December. The exhibit and sale will continue through December 30, 2010, weekdays from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, and at other times by appointment (Telephone: 607-722-9593).
