TTU News


Students, faculty and both the former and current artists in residence will showcase their work in fiber arts at Tennessee Tech University’s Appalachian Center for Craft through Thursday, Nov. 27 in Gallery One.

Craft Center fibers professor Jeanne Brady selected the pieces to reflect the artists’ varied interests and aesthetic choices. Though all students learn the same weaving, pattern printing and dyeing skills, they develop their own aesthetics.
