Natalie Novak is a visual artist in Portland, OR. Working primarily in tapestry, Novak draws from ancient and contemporary weaving techniques to explore color relationships, modern mysticism and the (super) natural world. Currently Novak maintains a dedicated practice at her home studio and teaches this meditative craft to students in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Samuel Bautista Lazo and family are a traditional Benizaa (Zapotec) family of weavers. Their woven products are hand dyed and woven from 'criollo' native wool, carrying out the traditions of their ancestors.
