Native American containers on exhibit in Warner NH

"Gourd Basket Full of Dream"

“Gourd Basket Full of Dream” by Judy Dow

A new exhibit of Native American containers is on display in the contemporary art gallery at the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, N.H.

Bark, marsh-plant fiber, ash splint, gourd, cattails – these are  some of the materials that have been skillfully and artfully twined, woven, carved, folded, or sewn into the containers.

“Containers” will focus on connecting the works of art to the plants from which they have been made,  as shown in Judy Dow’s “Gourd Basket Full of Dreams” and Vera Longtoe Sheehan’s “Five-color Twined Bag.”

The exhibit also features works from artists Jeanne Kent, Liz Charlebois, Lina Longtoe, Jennifer Lee, and Julia Marden.

“Containers” will be on display through July 14.
