NBO Members in “New Variations in Basketry”
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 chosen for this exhibition have created exemplary objects that use both traditional and experimental materials, with much attention paid to color, texture, form, and craftsmanship.
NBO members featured in the exhibition are Jackie Abrams, Dona Anderson, Pamela Becker, Lanny Bergner, John Garrett, Gyongy Laky, Elizabeth Whyte Schulze, Deborah Smith , Matt Tommey, and Jennifer Zurick.
