Inheritance: Basketry and Art of the Great Basin

Contemporary art exhibition will be on display through June 3, 2022, at the Great Basin Native Artists Gallery in the Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum, 1 Jacobsen Way in Carson City, Nevada.


“Inheritance: Basketry and Art of the Great Basin” displays pieces by invited artists from the Great Basin Native Artists Collective, the Great Basin Native Basket Weavers Association; and the permanent collection of the Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum.

“This basketry exhibition will cover an array of mediums from miniature woven willow cradleboards and basket hats to paintings and drawings,” Melero-Moose said, “all showing how basketry is interwoven into the Indigenous consciousness from generations before and generations to come.”

Among the featured artists in this new exhibition are Ben Aleck, Leah Brady, Loretta Burden, Rebecca Eagle, Sandra Eagle, Karma Henry, Micqaela Jones, Topaz Jones, Everett Pikyavit, Roger Salas, and Tanaya Winder.
