Ms. Myles will also give a demonstration of how she hooks her artwork, and will talk about her creative process.

The unusual subject matter – intriguing "men I've never met", and a zoo-full of appealing animals, from anteaters to armadillos, turtles to goats – is enhanced by her deft use of collage techniques. Of her rug making, the artist says, "Hooking is pure delight, a creative outlet for telling stories and expressing one's ideas, while enjoying color and textures.One Loop at a Time: June Myles' Hooked Art will be on exhibition through October 3.
