Rose Caplette rugs @ tart

A truly native Montanan, Rose Caplette brings an instinctive gift for dynamic color combinations to her rugs, hand-crocheted from recycled fabrics. Maybe somewhere in her DNA, female ancestors from her Crow Indian heritage help her out: Crow beadwork uses vibrant juxtapositions of color for dramatic designs. Maybe being “other-abled”–Rose is an adult with Down’s Syndrome–gives her the ability to be intuitive in her work. Either way her rugs are the inspired, vivid one-of-a-kind creations of  a unique young lady.

An opening reception with an artist’s demonstration and refreshments will be offered during the Emerson’s 2nd Friday artwalk on Friday, January 9th  5-8p.m
, The show will be on display through the end of January.
