From Guest Curator, Pati English: "As Guest Curator, it was my privilege to invite eight artisans to participate in this basketry exhibition. It is my vision that visitors will be amazed and engaged by the scope of artistry and history in hand woven fiber art...The unique display of three-dimensional art is a celebration of beauty and function. Journey through our American heritage, preserving our past, intersecting our present natural world of fiber, and connecting to the contemporary sculptures…”
