Juror's Talk: "Dogwood to Kudzu" Basketry Exhibit


Juror Judy Zugish will describe the artwork in the basketry exhibit through their form, technique, material and/or function noting the relationship between old and new, between functional and sculptural, and showcasing the evolution of the medium and the ever-expanding definition of the term "basket". Produced by the Handweavers Guild of America, Inc. (HGA), the Dogwood to Kudzu exhibit and juror's talk was originally scheduled to take place at the 2020 Convergence® conference that was going to take place in Knoxville in July. The conference was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the exhibit and juror's talk are now virtual. Participating artists have been invited to show their work at the 2022 Convergence® conference rescheduled for July 15-21, 2022 in Knoxville, TN. View Dogwood to Kudzu online.

Juror Judy Zugish began experimenting with garden fibers in 1978. This soon led to an obsession for basketmaking and many years of pursuing technique with notable traditional weavers. Today, her contemporary works using gathered natural materials are exhibited widely. She teaches her signature style both at home and abroad.
