Interwoven: The Everyday Basket in the 19th and Early 20th CenturiesJanuary 23, 2009 - July 12, 2009
Price-Strongwell Cultural Heritage Galleries
Not long ago, the containers predominantly used in everyday life in rural Virginia and Tennessee were handmade baskets. Makers constructed them out of a variety of materials, from the more familiar white oak to honeysuckle. They made baskets for their own use or to sell or trade with their neighbors. While most baskets were intended for a multitude of applications, some were created with a specific function in mind. Interwoven explores the many shapes and stories of the not-so-simple basket and its makers.
