An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 11, 2018
Judy Ness has been weaving and teaching fiber arts since 1994. A graduate of Iowa State University (1974, BS) and of the University of Oregon, she received a BFA (1997) and MFA (2000) in Fine Arts Textiles/Weaving. Judy has participated in over eighty exhibitions on the local, regional and national level. The Dendel Scholarship from the Handweavers Guild of America supported her study of jacquard techniques at Foundation Lisio in Florence, Italy in 1998. She developed a unique hybrid krokbragd-tapestry technique incorporating the Fibonacci proportional system during her Master’s work enabling linear design elements to be woven creating curved shapes. Ms. Ness was awarded First Place for the tapestry “Beloved” in the Handweaver’s Guild of America International Convergence in 2004 in the “Mountain’s Majesty” exhibit in Denver, Colorado. Judy was also an exhibitor in the international American Tapestry Biennial 5 exhibit that toured the United States in 2004. In 2014, she was awarded a Gold Medal for continued excellence in the contemporary weaving category by the Vesterheim International Exhibition of Norwegian-American Arts and Crafts. Judy continued to receive acknowledgement of her work from Vesterheim with two consecutive Best of Show awards in 2017 and 2018. Her special interests are in Norwegian textiles and Navajo weaving techniques.
