Laura Militzer Bryant

Bryant has never been overly fond of the term “fiber artist,” which she sees as having all the allure of a bowl of oat bran. Nevertheless, we can’t imagine not honoring her in this category for the exhibition of her hand-dyed, fiber-based work that was a highlight of Convergence 2008, a biennial, international conference of artists held in Tampa earlier this year. More like intricate Color Field paintings, Bryant’s meticulous weavings — lately mounted to painted boards — bathe the viewer in a breathtaking experience of vivid color that words and labels just can’t do justice.
