Brevard basket maker Joe Bruneau will be demonstrating at Gallery of the Mountains on Friday, October 21 from 1 – 5pm. Bruneau, who studied art at Warren Wilson College, has been handcrafting contemporary Appalachian ribbed baskets for nearly 25 years. Materials typically used for the basket frames are native wood products like grapevine or wisteria. All reed is hand-dyed.
Gallery of the Mountains features over 100 local and regional artists of the Southern Appalachians. The gallery is located inside The Omni Grove Park Inn (Sammons Wing).
