Gallery51 runs a rug rag exhibition “Jane Doyle – Back to Front” from 5 June through 15 July 2015 at their gallery 51 N. 2nd Street, Philadelphia.
“Jane began weaving rag rugs more than 27 years ago. Because she wanted a heavier more durable product than the conventional rag rug, she discovered a traditional though little used technique. Called Taquete or Summer and Winter on Opposites, this weave allowed her to incorporate fresh, new contemporary designs while keeping the rag rug tradition alive. This double binding technique produces heavy durable rugs bound of two different layers. Inverse colors appear on opposite sides. Because of their durability, all of the rugs are made to be walked on.” said gallery owner Craig Wallen to Jozan Magazine.
