New Artists at The Rug Company

A warm summer evening in 1863 Kara Walker

My favourite picks from an exhibition that Christopher and Suzanne Sharp, the couple behind The Rug Company, have commissioned. 14 contemporary artists have come up with a design for a tapestry each, not a rug but a tapestry all made entirely by hand in Shanghai. Wow!
