If "Seeking Order" is the title of my work, "Serendipity" would be the subtitle. I take materials and themes of interest to me, and humorously weave them together for expression and exploration. Creating is a time of reflection on past, present and future, linking the chapters together.
Jan Hewitt Towlsey's work is unique in that she uses a loom for weaving metals such as copper and brass, as well as more common materials like cotton and silk. Her two-dimensional designs give the impression of visual depth in that the metals shimmer and dance in the light.
Jan is a very involved Rochester artist who loves to teach others to create. She currently teaches classes at Aesthetic Education Institute, Rochester, NY and at Rush-Henrietta School District, Henrietta, NY. She has exhibited her work throughout Rochester, including Oxford Gallery, Clothesline Arts Festival and AAUW.
