Jeremy Frey Wins Top Prize
Jeremy Frey, a Passamaquoddy basketweaver in Maine, recently won Best of Show at the Sante Fe Indian Art Market.
He comes from a long line of native weavers. He specializes in ash fancy baskets, a traditional form of Wabanaki weaving. His work has been featured in the Changing Hands exhibit at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City. He has pieces in the Smithsonian as well as many other prominent museums around the country.
Jeremy also won Best of Show at Sante Fe Indian Market and at the Heard Indian Market in Fair in 2011. This is only the second time that someone has won both shows in the same year and the first time a basket has achieved this honor at the Sante Fe Indian Market in its over 90 year history.
This year, Jeremy will be demonstrating at the Hudson Museum at the University of Maine in December.
