Off the Radar: Hooked 

When: Fri., Dec. 18 2015



GOLDEN BELT—Rug hooking is an artisanal technique where strips of fabric are pulled through a woven base to create patterns, often figurative (flowers are perennial subjects). But Celia Gray, who recently moved to Chapel Hill after earning her MFA at Rutgers, uses the craft in concert with abstract painting to unravel the seam between the pleasantly decorative and creatively declarative. Her works have the rich surface of textile art and the delicate, open-ended color schemes of abstract painting, the forms pursued stitch by intuitive stitch rather than pre-imagined. The thoughtful, warming pieces are on view in Golden Belt's Off the Radar series of pop-up exhibits this Third Friday, but unlike some Off the Radar offerings, they'll stick around for a while, giving you the rest of December to get hooked. 6–9 p.m., free, 807 E. Main St., Durham, 919-967-7700, —Brian Howe
