Transformations: Cherokee Baskets of the Twentieth Century

November 1, 2006 – January 7, 2007

About The Exhibition

For hundreds of years, Cherokee women selected and harvested plants, trees, roots, nuts and vines and transformed them into an astonishing number and variety of baskets. This exhibition organized by the Asheville Art Museum examined Cherokee basket making over the past century, featuring cradle, burden, trunk, hen and market baskets made of native plants including rivercane, white oak and honeysuckle.
