As an artist, she was most well known for expressing herself through the craft of hooked rugs, many of which have not been publicly exhibited for 25 years. Now, you can see them on display as the Textile Center presents "I Am a Link: Pictorial Rugs by Dorothy Sauber," an exhibition devoted to these colorful and poignant creations.
Sauber's rugs are easily recognizable; her works are brightly colored and often depict pleasant moments of life in Minneapolis, particularly in Powderhorn Park where she lived. Other imagery common to her pieces include moments promoting political awareness and women's issues. And much like a painter, she always signed her work in large letters with her latch hook tool and black yarn.
Visit the Textile Center now through Septmember 3 to view "I Am a Link: Pictorial rugs by Dorothy Sauber." The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
