Jan Langdon: Loomed

June 15 - August 11, 2019


Curated by Elia Haworth

Like a painter, tapestry weaver Jan Langdon used wool, silk, and various fibers, layering geometric forms, creating quiet minimalism, or weaving in vibrant and complex patterns of color and texture on her large floor loom. She settled in the Bay Area in the1960s and shared her passion with students for decades. Jan co-founded The Weavers shop in Berkeley and moved to coastal Marin in 1974 where she became a founding member of Black Mountain Weavers in Point Reyes Station.
