To celebrate the opening of the exhibition Beyond Rugs! nationally recognized textile artist Liz Alpert Fay will give a presentation on the world of contemporary hooking.

In this illustrated presentation, Fay will lead viewers on a journey through the world of artists hooking throughout the United States and Canada.
Liz Alpert Fay studied Textile Design at Boston University and later became intrigued with the technique of traditional rug hooking.
