Fuller Craft Museum, New England’s home for contemporary craft, presents All Things Considered VI: National Basketry Organization Biennial Juried Exhibition, July 30—Dec. 11, 2011. The exhibition takes place as the National Basketry Organization (NBO) held its biennial conference at Stonehill College in Easton, Mass in early August. The show features 32 pieces by invited artists and 16 pieces by NBO instructors in addition to the 37 juried works selected by the exhibition jurors. Featuring both contemporary and traditional methods, All Things Considered VI represents the current pulse of the field of basketry, providing an incredible survey of the methods, materials and intents of contemporary basket makers.

The show was curated by Ann McMullen, Curator and Head of Collections Research and Documentation at the National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution; and Bruce Pepich, Executive Director and Curator of Collections for the Racine Art Museum. With the assistance of McMullen, this show includes the largest number of Native American baskets of any NBO exhibition to date. Pepich brought a savvy eye with his selections of contemporary basketmakers, many of whom are represented in the collection of the RAM, which has the largest collection of contemporary basketry in the United States. Basketry is a time-honored craft, but within it, there are an unending number of distinct historical and cultural traditions. Even when basketmakers work within these traditions, some of the most exciting works are born when artists experiment with new materials, techniques, or forms and create something that stretches the boundaries.
