An exhibit of contemporary paintings and antique rugs is on display at Shiraz Rug Gallery on the Post Road in Darien through Feb. 22.

The concept behind this show is this quotation by Gauguin: "O' painters who are looking for a color technique, study rugs." In this exhibit, the art has created harmonies of color and motif by arranging sets of antique rugs and tapestries around original contemporary abstract paintings.
