Foreign Accents to Debut Line with Artist Kathleen Mooney at High Point
Posted on February 25, 2014 by
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.-Foreign Accents has collaborated with artist Kathleen Mooney, translating her paintings and prints into a collection of rugs called Legends, which will debut at High Point Market.
Mooney is an award-winning, internationally recognized artist with Signature status in the National Watercolor Society and the International Society of Experimental Artists. She uses lyrical painting, printmaking, hand-cut stamps and custom stencils to create panels of acrylic paint with expressive and unique colors that recall the richness of silk.
Made of hand-tufted wool and viscose in India, the Legends collection includes many pieces that were inspired by Ireland.
"Working with Foreign Accents to translate my designs into rugs completes a full circle from the inspiration of ancient and world textiles back to a fresh expression of my art in rugs," said Mooney. "Ancient and contemporary, inspiration and beautiful rugs--I couldn't be happier!"
