Record Type: Person
Tawney, Lenore (American fiber and mixed-media artist, 1907-2007)

Note: American weaver is credited with helping to create the genre of fiber art, and in making the differences between craft and fine art more ambiguous. She studied at the Chicago Art Institute, and the Institute of Design in the 1940s. In 1957 she moved to New York and extablished her studio in lower Manhattan alongside neighbors Robert Indiana, Ellsworth Kelly and Agnes Martin, with whom she developed a close and artistically influential friendship. The work she is best known for are large sculptural weavings, though she also created collages and assemblages of varying dimensions. For several decades she would send a series of collages done on regulation-size postcards through the mail.
