Jacqui Lubbers: A Legacy In Weaving


February 1, 2019 - December 2020

Lubbers is a part-time weaving and art appreciation instructor in the WKU Art Department. "Even though the form and content of my work has changed, the compelling force behind my art hasn't," Lubbers said. "Turning a flat piece of woven cloth into a dimensional work of art or more basically, the process of weaving in general, is the most creative aspect of my life. Both processes and product come from my passion to weave and desire to make my art."
