This exhibit celebrates the National Basketry Organization’s 20th year and opens during their biennial basketry conference on the grounds of Western Kentucky University.
NBO biennial exhibitions have become an important record of artistic work within traditional and contemporary basketry. They are unique in their focus on basketry and in their inclusion of the full range of work being executed by well-known and emerging artists. The goal of the exhibition is to showcase benchmarks of excellence in basketry that demonstrate superior technique and original concept and design.

For the first time in the ten-year history of this event, work in the exhibition is being made available for purchase exclusively online. Purchased work will not be available until the close on the exhibition on December 1, 2019.
IMPORTANT: Both the artist and buyer will be given mutual contact information at the time of sale. Once the exhibition at the Kentucky Museum closes in December, the work will be returned to the artist. At that time, the buyer and artist will be responsible to contact each other and the buyer will provide a shipping address and payment for shipping.
