“Containers, Containment, and Contents”

January 9, 2009 to February 12, 2009 at the Arts Council of Snohomish County, 1507 Wall St., Everett. The Arts Council of Snohomish County has offered the Northwest Basket Weavers Guild and Northwest Designer Craftsmen a joint art show at the Monte Cristo Hotel Lobby. Katherine is working on the show as a board member of the Northwest Basket Weavers Guild and has two baskets in the show. If you would like to read more about the exhibit, here is an Everett Herald story about the show.

The opening reception was this past Friday, Jan. 9. Katherine demonstrated her work in the gallery as part of the event. There were quite a few of the artists in attendance. Carrie Collver and the Arts Council staff did a great job in presenting the show.

This show coincides with the Bellevue Art Museum’s show “Intertwined: Contemporary Baskets from the Sara and David Lieberman Collection”. Both of these shows will provide an opportunity to see some of the best work in contemporary basketry. Katherine will also be demonstrating her craft at BAM on Saturday, February 7, 12 to 3pm.
