Time To Cut A Rug.

It's official! 2010 has arrived and we're extremely excited to see what the new year and the new decade has in store. We had a fantastic and relaxing holiday back home, but now we're back in New York and ready to work, have fun and be inspired. One of the first things we're excited to check out is a new exhibition entitled Demons, Yarns and Tales. This show is at the James Cohan Gallery and was created by Banners of Persuasion, an arts commissioning organization set up in 2008 by Christopher and Suzanne Sharp, founders of The Rug Company.

The Sharps invited 13 internationally renowned artists to explore a medium foreign to their usual practice, Tapestry, "a lost art made redundant by the sheer expense of its production and non-compliance within a world impatient to conform to the ease of mass-production in an era of convenience. The art of Tapestry and the knowledge of its craft faded long ago in much the same way as the magnificent tapestries themselves disintegrated."

Three years in the making, the exhibition reveals the shifting transformation of each artist’s unique visual style from his or her known medium into the uncharted and the unknown. We've showcased some of our favorite artists who contributed to the show and their work above (be sure and click on the image to see all of the detailing-incredible!). These include:

- Zelada by Jamie Gili (wool, silk and artificial silk tapestry)
- Georgie and Orchids by Gary Hume (wool tapestry with raised silk embroidery)
- The Bugs and the Lovers by Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh (wool tapestry w/silk bugs)

- Mappa Del Mundo by Gavin Turk (wool and silk tapestry with metallic thread detail)
- A Warm Summer Evening in 1863 by Kara Walker (wool tapestry and felt silhouette)
- After Migrant Fruit Thugs by Fred Tomaselli (wool and silk tapestry with metallic thread detail)
