Lois Bryant maintains a studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She specializes in one-of-a-kind weaving (digital Jacquard and multi-harness) as well as embroidery, mixed media, and photography. Her work often incorporates illusions of depth, luminosity, transparency, and iridescence. Five of Bryant’s weavings are installed in the main lobby and the main floor Gallery Corridor of Mott Children’s Hospital, and two weavings are in President’s Conference Room of the Fleming Building at the University of Michigan. Her work is also in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Design/Cooper-Hewitt/Smithsonian Institution, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and other museums, as well as in corporate and residential collections nationwide. Bryant teaches Introduction to Art at Eastern Michigan University as well as Fibers and 2-Dimensional Design at Adrian College. She has also taught at the University of Michigan, Parsons the New School for Design, and the Rhode Island School of Design. Bryant was introduced to weaving at an early age at Cranbrook Kingswood School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. She received an MFA from Eastern Michigan University, an MAE from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a BA from Brown University.
