Martha Bird Published in Basket Reeder Magazine

Longtime basketweaver and newest core group member, Martha Bird, has been busy at work making her presence known in the arts community. Her article "From Michigan to Minnesota…and reaching back again" was just published in the Basket Reeder magazine (Winter 2017 edition) put out by the Association of Michigan Basketmakers. This is the country’s oldest and largest basketmaker organization and is where Martha got her start in this medium while living in Michigan in the 1990’s.

We will have several opportunities to see her basketry on exhibit in 2017 as she will have a number of upcoming shows featuring her work. She is also the lead curator for the Water's Edge, an upcoming Spectrum Artworks group exhibition that will be at the University of Minnesota's Landscape Arboretum, which opens in April! More news on that to come!

Congrats to Martha!
