Biography   Lenore Tawney


Fiber artist Lenore Tawney, born in Lorain, Ohio, became an influential figure in the development of woven sculpture as an art medium.  Her introduction to the tenets of the German Bauhaus* school and the artistic avant-garde came in 1946 with her attendance at Lazlo Moholy-Nagy's Chicago Institute of Design, and study with Moholy-Nagy, cubist sculptor Alexander Archipenko and abstract-expressionist painter Emerson Woelffer.  In 1949, she studied weaving with Marli Ehrmann.

Destroying her clay sculpture, she moved tentatively to fiber, receiving a huge career "break" when the first pieces she made, black and white table mats, were selected by the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City, for a "Good Design" exhibition.
