Janet Marcavage
(American, born 1975)

Location: Peninsula College, Port Angeles


Warp and Weft IV is a screen print by artist Janet Marcavage. It is part of her exploration of the patterns, movement, and meaning of textiles in daily life. She notes, "Observing and drawing from striped and gingham fabrics, I enjoy the way that these patterns shift meaning based on the form in which they take, such as the form of a table, girl, man or laundry pile."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Peninsula College.


Artist and Professor Janet Marcavage specializes in intaglio print and screenprint. She explores visual language throughout the history of printmaking.
