MEREDITH — The featured exhibit at the NH League of Craftsmen's Gallery Shop for the month of September is a celebration of harvest time "Gathering Together," a collection of basketry by local artists
Basket weaving is one of the oldest art forms known to man. The variety of weaves and materials used worldwide make for thousands of different types and styles. It has been said that baskets are a direct reflection of the diverseness found within the global population. Each individual weaver creates their own masterpieces with varying weaves, materials, colors, and patterns. Baskets are both purposeful and creations of artistic expression.
The collection will include work by Ruth Boland, Cheryl Christenson, Sharon Dugan, Lynn Goldberg, Ray Lagasse, Liz Lapham, Alice Ogden, and more.
