I took the photo above of our friend Sharle Osborne at the opening of the show “Containers, Contained, Containment” at the Arts Council of Snohomish County. Her piece called “Early Detection” on the pedestal behind her appears to be giving her ‘rabbit ears’. Her sculpture is woven from western red cedar bark, waxed linen, and buff willow. Fortunately for all of us, Sharle is a cancer survivor. She is one of Katherine’s long term basketry buddies. (How do I say that with out getting into trouble?!)
This show coincides with the Bellevue Art Museum’s show “Intertwined: Contemporary Baskets from the Sara and David Lieberman Collection”, as well as basketry focused shows at several area galleries. Jan Hopkins has put together a blog with many photos of these shows. You will see a few of my photos from the “Containers” opening included. My earlier post about the opening is here.
P.S. The large sculpture to the left is “Cedar Perfume Bottle” by Sue Skelly.
