"Oh To Live By The Sea" - an exhibit of hooked rugs

The local museum recently had an exhibit of beautiful hooked rugs.  The description of the exhibit drew me in - "This traveling exhibit features hook rugs by various artists, all with an ocean theme. Inspired by the last line of the poem “Sea Joy” by Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, “Oh—To live by the sea is my only wish,” these works range from traditional representations of lobster shacks, fishing boats, sea gulls and beach vacations to more abstract representations of sea, sky, shells and sand." 

We weren't disappointed.

Can you hear the waves?

Loved this one.

Himself's favorite.

How cool!  A mixed media hooked rug.

In this one, the even the stones and shells are made of fabric.
