Weaving

About Reid Coyner

Regardless whether he is working in watercolor, woodcuts, silk-screened T-shirt or digital panoramic photography, there is a common thread that links all – his eye. You can smell the heat of the sun, the crisp autumn air and the boldness of the spring bulbs crowning through the winter freeze in his art all from his living on a farm. Beginning at age three, Reid is spending his life observing, learning and translating what he sees into art both watercolors and woodcuts. Collections with Reid’s art may be found in Europe, South America, Canada and the US and we are pleased he has found The Henderson in Marion, Virginia!

Reid’s projects range from printmaking to book binding and textile design. He earned a BS in Textile Design from NCSU and attended both RISD and grad school at UNCG and now he is bringing it all home to Marion. Check out Reid’s Printmaking Workshops too!
