Arts Glances: Weaving exhibit, trio performance, food drive



Weaving exhibit on display at Jesup Memorial Library 

BAR HARBOR — The weavings of Bar Harbor-based textile artist Laney Lloyd are on display during the month of November at the Jesup Memorial Library.  

Lloyd started weaving in the 1970s. At the time she spun and dyed her own yarns and created clothing and wall hangings. Since then, she started weaving on more sophisticated looms and Lloyd now creates her weavings on a 16-harness, computerized loom. Her work focuses on the interplay of color, layers and structure.  

“The repetitive rhythm of throwing the shuttle has a very meditative quality and provides a nurturing refuge for me during stressful times,” Lloyd said.
