What's New at NBO
Sometimes the world seems large and then sometimes small and intimate. After returning from a spectacular road trip to the Waterton Lakes Glacier National Peace Parks in Montana and Alberta Canada, I found out that I’d missed a Seasger/Gray Gallery opening in a nearby town. One of the two artists in the month-long show happened to be Deloss Weber. Deloss was featured in the summer issue of Basket+ in an Artist Profile. While I missed the opportunity to meet him it was wonderful to see his work up close and personal. Here’s a link to the Seager/Gray Gallery where you can see many images of Deloss’s work. If you don’t receive the magazine and want to learn more about Deloss you can purchase a copy of the magazine with his artist profile in the NBO Store. You can also join NBO and then you’ll begin receiving copies of the quarterly Basketry+ magazine.
There are so many guilds around the country to introduce to you. This month our Featured Guild is the Great Basin Native Basketweavers Association. The geography of this guild stretches from the South area of Death Valley, California, to the middle of Oregon and from the Sierra Mountain all the way to the Great Salt Lake! It includes the following tribes: Washoe, Shoshone, Northern and Southern Paiute, Goshute, Ute, Bannock, Mohave and Chemehuevi. Check out their website: Great Basin Basin Native Basketweavers Association to find out more and keep reading for their article below.
I want to remind you that our second Members in Print Exhibition will be here before you know it. The 2020 theme is Pattern and Texture. Entries will be accepted from February 1 - March 15. More information to come.
