Wednesday Artist: Tommye McClure Scanlin

Today's Wednesday Artist features Tommye McClure Scanlin, primarily a tapestry weaver since 1988 who exhibits nationally and internationally. The award-winning McClure, who lives in Georgia, has been a weaver, using many different weaving techniques, for more than three decades.

Scanlin's Website works in progress includes her blog, a list of her workshops on tapestry and design (she'll be teaching at ArtSpace in Raleigh, North Carolina, February 6-8), images of her current tapestries, links to her gorgeous handcraft on other Websites, and an excellent list of resources for weavers and collectors.

My thanks to Woven for the video.
