Opening Reception, December 2nd, 5:30 – 8:30 pm
On view from December 2nd to January 14th, 2017

Traditionally, baskets were multipurpose vessels made from available materials suited to their function. In more recent times, as borders were crossed and ideas exchanged, traditional patterns, styles, and materials came to be shared internationally by artists and designers. While still honoring their historically universal kinship, these contemporary pieces have transitioned from solely functional containers into objects reflecting individual artistic expression.

The twenty-one artists we have carefully chosen for this exhibition are a clear snapshot of these changes. They have created exemplary objects that use both traditional and experimental materials, with much attention paid to color, texture, form…and craftsmanship.

The artists featured in this exhibition are:
Jackie Abrams, Christine and Michael Adcock, Dona Anderson, Pamela Becker, Lanny Bergner, Ruth Borgenicht, John Garrett, Laura Baring-Gould, Joe Hogan, Shelley Jones, Kay Khan, Gyongy Laky, Ed Bing Lee, Debora Muhl, Joh Ricci, Elizabeth Whyte Schulze, Joyce J. Scott , Deborah Smith , Matt Tommey, and Jennifer Zurick
