About the Artist:
"My vision is born when I am inspired by an artistic idea that triggers the bottom, or inset within a basket. Pine needle baskets are originally a Native American art. Needles are hand collected from pine trees in Florida. They are washed, trimmed, dyed or painted. Securing them into place is done by stitching them with artificial sinew.
Today, my pieces have evolved into more artistic designs than just baskets. I continue to use pine needles, but they are not always the focal point. I now create and experiment with different elements to create interesting pieces. I may paint a picture, wood carve a design or mold clay for the base. I then use resin to incorporate metal, glass, stone, coral, beads and other contemporary materials to create a 2D or 3D unique creation." For more about the artist, visit carolpardelldesigns.com.
Exhibit will be on view through November 30, 2019. Questions? Please contact Gallery Director at email@example.com or 352-369-1500.
