CreatorFawkes, Judith Poxson
About the ArtistJudith Poxson Fawkes, a resident of Portland, Oregon, is a graduate of Cranbrook Academy of Art. She taught weaving at four institutions of higher education, most recently at Lewis and Clark College, Portland. Her fifty-six commissions hang in such diverse locations as a Federal courthouse, hospitals, university and school buildings, corporations and businesses, a Royal Caribbean Cruise ship, residences in Saudi Arabia and Paris, and in a jail lobby. Sixty-three tapestries are in public collections. She is a recipient of a WESTAF/NEA Regional Fellowship for Visual Artists, an Individual Artists' Fellowship from the Oregon Art Commission and a Crafts Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts. She has written a book entitled "Weaving a Chronicle" described as a visual and written catalog by a working tapestry weaver. Forty-six tapestries, pictured in color, are accompanied by adjacent text describing the reasons for each work's creation. Stories of the tapestries revisit commissions and exhibitions. Each tapestry represents seminal ideas in one of six series. The tapestries contribute to the chronicle of how ideas are conceived and executed-- adding to the history of American art and craft, and to the definition of contemporary tapestry.
