Please join Paul Ramsey at the amazing Shaver-Ramsey Gallery, 589 Fillmore St., southwest corner of 6th Ave. and Fillmore St. on February 5 at 6:30 PM for a lecture about Middle Eastern Rugs. Wine and cheese and social time at 6:30, followed by lecture and discussion at 7:00. This free lecture is limited to 60 paid CCNNA Members.

Paul was a founder of Shaver-Ramsey rugs which has been a fixture in Cherry Creek North since 1976. Recently, the gallery moved from its location on East 3rd Avenue to its beautiful new space on 6th Ave. Paul has traveled widely in rug-producingareas of the Middle East, mainly Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan, and speaks multiple languages. While he has shared his expertise through articles and lectures, Paul mostly enjoys discussing his knowledge, experience and enthusiasm about rugs and textiles directly with people who have interest. He will discuss the history of rugs and what makes them unique in the world. From this lecture, followed by Q&A, you will gain an increased appreciation of the beauty of these amazing works of art—their weaving, coloration and patterning. Paul is also a curator of an upcoming exhibition of Middle Eastern Rugs at the Denver Art Museum, scheduled to open in 2021.
