Cherokee Basketry: Woven Culture

Cherokee Basketry: Woven Culture
This catalogue accompanies the exhibition of the same name, on view at the Georgia Museum of Art Jan. 23–April 17, 2016, and organized by co-curators Dale L. Couch, Mary C. Scales English, and Janice Simon. All 45 objects in the exhibition (mostly baskets but also a scarf designed by Georgian Frankie Welch that pictures the Cherokee syllabary and a slat-back chair with a woven seat) are illustrated in full color. Essays by Couch, Scales English, Simon and contributor Joseph Litts flesh out different aspects of these baskets, adding anthropological and collecting insights.
