ACLO presents “Gathering Pattern”
June 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Arts Council of Lake Oswego (ACLO) presents
Virtual Opening: Friday, June 5, 5 – 6 pm
Open Virtually Daily: June 5 – July 24
With more than 200 members, the Columbia Basin Basketry Guild’s mission is to preserve, promote, and teach the art and appreciation of basketry. The exhibition is hand-curated and features fifteen member submissions that reflect the personal artistry of each member. Some use traditional techniques while utilizing nontraditional materials. Others begin with natural materials and diverge into modern weaving. Each piece brings a vision of weaving that is unique to the maker, while linked and informed by traditional l basketry and techniques. Viewers will see various forms of media including gathered natural and/or locally sourced recycled materials.
The Arts Council is working to connect the public with this exhibition by offering online viewing and a virtual opening on June 5th where you can follow along with curators, Stephanie Johnson of ACLO and Rose Covert from CBBG. They will walk you through the gallery with artist’s statements and processes that range from free-form 3D installations to utilitarian pieces.
Plus, the Arts Council will offer virtual programming on weaving and techniques later in the month. The baskets will also be featured in an online store where the public can purchase pieces for their collection, use, and enjoyment.
