I teach digital photography and commercial art at school, so I chose to include a digital collage titled Basket Treasures as one of my entries. It combines my interest in travel photography and basketry by showing a variety of my baskets and a photo I took on one of my vacation trips.
My second entry is a hanging vessel made from woven reed and a gourd top. It includes round and flat reed in shades of violet, greens and cream and a walnut slice. The free-form vessel breaks away from traditional basketry shapes.
The opening reception is this Thursday, April 19th from
5:00pm until 7:00pm at The Art Institute of Washington Gallery of Art located at 1820 North Fort Myer Drive in Arlington, VA.
I hope you can make this event and help celebrate the ARTS.
