Joan Hutten is our September Featured Artist for Building 6! Hutten’s solo exhibit, “Experiments in Fiber Art,” runs September 11, 2020 through October 4, 2020. Learn more about her and her work below.
I am attracted to the fiber arts because of the limitless possibilities of the materials. I love experimenting with color and texture, working with a variety of techniques, and manipulating my materials in unconventional ways to create unique and visually beautiful art and wearable art.
Joan Hutten has had a lifelong interest in the visual arts. She earned a BA in Art and Art History and an MA in Art History, and has worked as a corporate art consultant, museum docent and art teacher. Since joining the Studio Fiber Arts group at the Workhouse in 2008, she has focused on creating fiber art and wearables. Joan’s work can also be seen at the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA.
