“There is a continuum where beauty and function blend and diverge in the hands of the contemporary artist. Even when traditional materials such as thread, fabric, wood, reed, and paper are used, these artists combine skill, imagination, and vision to meld their materials into compelling and beautiful art which resonates in today’s world.”
This exhibition is a collaboration between Studio Art Quilt Associates and the National Basketry Organization. Artists from both organizations were invited to participate in this conversation between media to illustrate the continuum between beauty and functionality.
The exhibit will travel for the next three years, to a variety of locations that can be seen on the NBO calendar. Enter ART EVOLVED in the search bar.
