FLOORCLOTHS BY ADDIE PEET

June 2-July 30, 2017

The Center for Maine Craft presents an exhibition of hand-painted contemporary functional, practical and durable floor coverings by Addie Peet Design.

With a love for traditional methods, utilitarian form, and contemporary style, Addie Peet’s floorcloth and print studios focus on bringing back lost concepts from the past. While both pieces of work differ in method and purpose, they share the same intention of using intuitive practices of the past in combination with modern materials and aesthetics, creating functional, durable and practical pieces to enhance a more holistic and simplistic lifestyle.

Adamant about structural integrity, after years of trial fabrication and material tests Addie has found the most appropriate combinations of natural heavy weight canvas and marine grade acrylics to create a rug which is easy to clean, stain resistant and hypoallergenic. These benefits accommodate a lifestyle where work boots are rarely taken off at the front door and muddy paw prints are common in all four seasons.
