Artist Rugs: Dovecotâ€™s Contemporary Rug Collection
Part of Follow the Thread
Dovecot Studios summer celebration of weaving and wool
Dovecot Studios have been the leading pioneers in tapestry and rug making for over a 100 years. This exhibition showcases Dovecotâ€™s contemporary hand-tufted rugs which are in turn graphic and vibrant, colourful and highly original. These works â€“ all of which are for sale â€“ are considered to be as much works of art, as rugs and wall hangings. They represent a broad range of artistic concerns, styles and ideas and highlight Dovecotâ€™s rare expert skill for colour blending and design, and working with contemporary artists. Artist Rugs: Dovecotâ€™s Contemporary Rug Collection features work from artists as diverse as John Byrne, William Crozier, Alan Davie, Nick Evans, Ruth Ewan, and Alasdair Gray alongside those of Dovecotâ€™s own artist weavers and rug tufters.
