Contemporary artists working within the fields of Basketry and Quilting work across a broad continuum where concept and function blend and diverge. Diverse materials such as thread, fabric, wood, reed, paper, and mixed media are used with skill, imagination, and vision to create compelling art that resonates in today’s world. Artists are invited to participate in this conversation between media that illustrates these varied approaches along this continuum between concept and functionality, two-dimensional and 3-dimensional. This is a joint exhibition with the Studio Art Quilt Associates.
