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. Artists were invited to participate in this conversation between media to illustrate the continuum between beauty and functionality.
This is a joint exhibition with the National Basketry Organization.
