Jamie Boyle is an artist who works with a variety of weaving and fiber techniques and is currently an artist-in-residence in the fibers/mixed media studio at Contemporary Craft. She received a BA in Studio Art and Art History from the University of Pittsburgh and an MFA in art, with an emphasis on sculpture, from The Ohio State University. Her first weaving teacher was artist Ann Hamilton, in whose studio Jamie worked for several years after graduate school. Subsequently, in New York City, Owyn Marisol Ruck, Kira Silver, Isa Rodrigues, Kelly Valetta, and Jose Picayo taught Jamie how to use a floor loom as a tool for weaving. In addition to weaving in New York City, she frequently collaborated with artists to create material stuff (props, costumes, or set components) for dance and theater productions, working with Wally Cardona and Jennifer Lacy (The Set Up), Faye Driscoll (Thank You for Coming: Play), Ursula Eagly (piece with gaps for each other), Siti Company with Ann Hamilton (the theater is a blank page), and Geoff Sobelle (The Object Lesson), among others. She has had the great honor of sharing her love of weaving with communities of learners at Contemporary Craft, the Park Slope Center for Successful Aging, the National Council of Jewish Women NY Lifetime Learning Center, The Museum of Arts and Design, and the Textile Arts Center. Jamie has participated in artist residencies at the Textile Arts Center (Brooklyn, NY); the Museum of Arts and Design (New York, NY); and through the SU-CASA program administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council.
