Exhibit: Traditions Interwoven
Ward Museum, Welcome Gallery; Opening Reception: Friday, June 13, 5-7 p.m.
Basket weaving is arguably the most widespread traditional art form in the history of human civilization. Archaeologists have found pressed imprints of woven baskets decorating clay pots more than 10,000 years old. The technique of weaving has been passed along, re-discovered and expanded upon by countless cultures, and basket makers are as innovative today as their forebears were. Visit for a look at historic and contemporary regional works ranging from farm baskets to eel pots to decorative art pieces. For more information call 410-742-4988.
