Master weaver Jan Doyle’s lush, colorful fiber works are displayed throughout North America and Great Britain. Featuring contemporary takes on historic techniques, each thread is hand painted, creating the movement of color across each piece. Ms. Doyle is Artistic Director and Co-Founder of the Carolina Fiber and Fiction Center, in Richmond’s historic Octagon House. Work by other artists from the center will also be on view.
