About Richard Landis
(Born 1931)  

Richard W. Landis is a designer-weaver from Long Beach CA.  He studied art and design at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.  Landis spent 1953-1954 with the United States military in Korea and Japan, becoming familiar with the art and crafts of those cultures. This experience led him to weaving, which he began in earnest in 1964. 

Landis was awarded the National Endowment for the Arts Craftsman’s Fellowship in 1977.  Individual and group exhibitions of his work have been held in private and public galleries in Arizona, California and New York from 1969 through 1982. 

Collections of Landis’ work are in the Art Institute of Chicago;  Museum of Modern Art,  NYC;  Cooper-Hewitt Museum, New York; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam Museum of Art, The Netherlands; Rhode Island School of Design.   Landis’ interests are in art and education.

The Art Fabric: Mainstream by Mildred Constantine and Jack Lenor Larsen references Landis, illustrating one of his weavings titled “12 Tone Study.” The illustrated Landis weaving was mentioned on Laura MacCary’s website as having influenced her textile work. 

Complimenting an exhibit of Landis' textiles at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum (2019) is a nearly 4 minutes YouTube.com depicting Landis explaining his development as a textile weaver.  Color Decoded the Textiles of Richard Landis  https://www.artandobject.com/news/unraveling-complex-weavings-richard-landis-color-decoded
