UArts Presents Exhibit by Late Fiber Artist Lenore Tawney
The University of the Arts presents "Wholly Unlooked For," an exhibition by the late artist Lenore Tawney (1907-2007), a leading figure in the contemporary fiber arts movement. Presented in conjunction with the Lenore G. Tawney Foundation, the exhibit will feature her paper-focused pieces. The Maryland Institute College of Art, Tawney's alma mater, is hosting a complementary exhibition under the same title featuring her line-based objects. Related events at UArts include a panel discussion and a concurrent exhibition featuring work by students in the MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking and Crafts/Fibers programs, who have each created a piece in response to Tawney's work.
