Providentially, both Rug News andDesign and Dover Rugs are featuring painted cars.
The September issue of Rug News andDesign will be distributed at 295 Fifth Avenue during Home Fashions Week. The cover features The Cadillac Ranch near Amarillo Texas.
Just last week, Sarah Stroh, the andDesign editor was driving across the USA with her son, mother and dog around Amarillo on Route 66, she took a turn and there she was checking off another item on her bucket list — spray painting a car.
Rugs and Painted Vehicles? What is the connection? Design and Color! It is significant to us that Dover Rugs thinks the same way!
On Wednesday September 6th, Dover Rugs is having a special presentation of the distinctive folk art form of Pakistan known as truck art. Haider Ali is known as the King of Truck Art and has exhibited and taught the craft at the Smithsonian. One of Haider Ali’s goals is to continue mentoring young artists to carry on the legacy. He and his students have started a company
called Phool Patti (‘flowers leaves’ in Urdu/Hindi)to institutionalize this art form.
The presentation will be from 7:00 – 9:00 PM at their Natick, MA store — 721 Worcester Road
