LaVerne Kemp is our Featured Artist for June 2020

Kate McGrady

Today, LaVerne’s award winning textiles have become iconic in Pittsburgh’s fiber arts community.  She’s known as an amazingly talented artist  with a long history of quality art making. Her powerful artwork draws the viewer in through her adventurous use of color, pattern, motion and meaning. Over the years, LaVerne’s work has evolved from incredible  woven clothing to include jewelry, greeting cards,  wall hanging, sculptural dolls and home goods.

She explores and incorporates on and off loom weaving, hand made felt, traditional and Japanese Shibori dying techniques and beading to enhance her work.

Her work has been exhibited extensively across the US and featured multiple times in the Carroll Harris Simms National Black Art Competition  and Exhibition in Dallas and has multiple awards from The African American Art Exhibition at Actors Theater in Louisville.

Please join us in thanking LaVerne for her dedication and contribution to the Pittsburgh Arts Community. More of her work will be coming to the online store soon. It is always available in our shop as well.
