“Wait! This Is A Basket?” Slide Presentation
Shanna Robinson will conduct a slide presentation called “Wait! This is a Basket?” on Friday, September 23, 5:30 – 7 pm at the GAAC – a lead-in to her September 24 workshop Materials Exploration. Contemporary basket makers have pushed this familiar object in dynamic, sculptural directions, using both traditional and unorthodox materials. The results transcend the functional forms associated with basketry. Robinson will discuss contemporary and historical three-dimensional forms of fiber artwork. The slide presentation is included in the workshop fee. In addition, a limited number of seats will be reserved for non-students. These seats require advanced reservations and are $10 GAAC members, $15 nonmembers (see below to reserve). Read more about the Materials Exploration workshop here.
