|What's New at NBO
I've recently returned from a road trip to visit several National Parks. I saw a phenomenal amount of wildlife including herds of bison and mountain vistas with golden Aspen trees in all their fall glory. My time, separated from everyday life, proved to be just what I needed. It gave me the time to think, regroup and acquire some much-needed perspective. I’m happy to be back to work at NBO with my eyes wide open during a beautiful Autumn 2021.
We’re introducing a new semi-annual zoom gathering, the Lunch Basket. It’s a time to show and talk about your work with others hosted by NBO Board Member Chrissa Brock. Our first Lunch Basket will take place on Thursday, November 18th at 11 am Pacific Time. Email NBO Lunch Basket for a link to sign up for this new, free event.
There’s a nice piece below by Anne Bowers. She recently traveled to the Missouri Basketweavers Guild’s annual event and shares her experience and impressions with us.
NBO’s Every 1 Exhibition continues to be available for viewing on our website if you have not seen it yet. There are 161 NBO Members’ pieces included in the exhibit. Take a look to see the breadth of their work.
Please make sure to use the hashtag #NBOMember when you post anything on Facebook and Instagram. We want to help you share your work. NBO will link to your post and other members will be more likely to see them.
Have a wonderful autumn.
