Art in Studio


Peter Butler

If you haven't made it by since the Holidays, come as soon as you can to enjoy our current exhibition curated by Joe Rowand featuring artist Peter Butler. The vibrant blues in his oil paintings cheer even the dreariest winter days.

Rugs by Martha Clippinger

Also in studio, (you'll be hearing more about her in the future), artist Martha Clippinger recently returned from her old Fulbright research stomping grounds - Teotitlan del Valle in Oaxaca, Mexico - with many beautiful and original new hand-dyed, hand-woven wool rugs. Martha creates each design in gouache before collaborating with the weavers to formulate dye colors and translate the designs into the rugs.

Martha has been invited to do a solo exhibition of her rugs at Hionas Gallery in New York this Spring, so we only have a limited collection currently available. 

If you are interested in a custom rug commission,  find Martha at her studio in Goldenbelt in Durham, or directly on her website here: http://www.marthaclippinger.com/
