Exhibitions at ACOR 8 in Boston 2006

Category: Exhibitions,Fairs and conferences

The American Conference on Oriental Rugs, ACOR 8 in Boston, included 12 interesting exhibitions. In the first part of the exhibition reviews I have chosen to show rugs from New England Collects, Gems of Caucasus, the Collection of Gerard Paquin and Baluch rugs from the collection of Mark Hopkins.

New England Collects
The exhibition included 50 examples of textiles from 26 members of the New England Rug Society. According to the curator for the exhibition, Julia Bailey, the collectors appetite for older, atypical rugs and tolerance for less-than-pristine condition are more evident now than on earlier conference exhibitions.
