Dorothy McGuinness lives and weaves in Everett, Washington. Her woven paper baskets have been chosen by ten different jurors over the past 11 years for inclusion in the Arts Center’s national Handcrafted exhibition. Her 2009 Handcrafted entry Launch was selected as Best in Show and is now part of the Arts Center’s permanent collection. She has exhibited nationally and in Turkey, been selected for numerous awards in juried competitions, and been included in publications such as 500 Handmade Dolls, 500 Baskets, and Teapots, Makers and Collectors among others.

Dorothy, your work is truly inspirational. I've made baskets for 30 years, and am now into altered art. My muse has been encouraging me to incorporate weaving and I think I'll soon be at work!! Thanks!

Wonderful work! I can't wait to go and see the exhibit during the reception. These sorts of opportunities are so few for us in Eastern NC.
