Artwork by Edwina Bringle


Edwina Bringle has enjoyed being a studio artist and living in the Penland community near Spruce Pine, moving there after 24 years of teaching at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. As a fiber artist, she has focused on the use of color and design in the creation of woven textiles and mixed media stitched pieces. In 1964, she was introduced to weaving while in a class at the Penland School of Crafts. Later, she became a resident artist and first taught there in 1969. Bringle’s work is in the collections at the North Carolina Museum of History, Greenville County Museum of Art in South Carolina, Gregg Museum of Art in Raleigh, the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte, and in numerous private collections.
