Join Studio Artist-in-Residence Tracy Bromwich for an exhibit of work created during her tenure (4/26/17 – 7/29/17) at the Camera Obscura Art Lab. Light refreshments.
Tracy Bromwich is a fiber artist and architect who loves mechanical problem-solving. Her desire for a thoughtfully crafted built environment has most recently found expression in floor loom weaving. Working from the scale of a single thread to the dimensions of a length of cloth, she creates compositions of pattern and color in handwoven fabric. Through her weaving studio/textile brand, wonder woven, she applies a modern aesthetic to pre-Industrial Revolution technologies. Her work explores both process and material – and often employs hand-dyeing techniques informed by the properties of different fibers. She enjoys sharing her love for fiber arts with others and can often be found engaged in a project with the students, teachers and parents at local schools. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies from the University of Washington and a Master of Architecture from the Yale School of Architecture. She is licensed to practice architecture in the state of California.
