Archway Gallery presents its December exhibition, Resonance, featuring new woven artworks by Laura Viada.

Laura Viada’s first solo exhibition at Archway Gallery explores the theme of “resonance,” as both a physical phenomenon and as an emotional, transcendent component of human creativity. Laura is an artist who works in the medium of fiber, primarily as a handweaver. Using linen, silk, cotton, and metallic threads as her “paints” she creates visually complex artworks using the simple elements of basic geometric form and the interaction of color.

The exhibition will be on display through Thursday, January 7, 2021.

About Laura Viada

Laura Viada is a handweaver and fiber artist who creates works of art in natural fibers and metallics. While taking a pause from a demanding career in law, she discovered weaving, fell in love with the world of fiber and never looked back. For the past 25 years, Laura has been an active member of Texas’ fiber art community. Her work has been exhibited nationally and has won numerous awards.

In 2008, she spent nine months as an Artist-in-Residence at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and served on the Center’s Artist-in Residence Selection Panel from 2013 to 2015.
