This weekend, August 10 - 12, 10am to 5pm daily, at the Monument Mountain Regional High School on Rte. 7 in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, I will be exhibiting my baskets. This is a gem of a show, only 89 artists, media includes: jewelry, clothing, ceramics, leather, glass, fiber, metal, mixed media and wood - something for everyone!

I've started a new series of sculptural baskets referencing environmental topics of the day. This year, here in Vermont, I'm participating in the first ever, state-wide bumble bee survey. Over the years, these important pollinators have been on the decline. Doing a survey will provide a reference for discerning the gain or loss of populations of this valuable resource.
This piece is called "Pollinators". Vermont has almost 20 bumble bee species and a few are in serious decline or may even be extinct in our state.
