Exhibits - Transcending Traditions

The Next Generation and Maine Indian Basketry

Transcending Traditions features five contemporary Maine Indian basketmakers who represent the next generation: Jeremy Frey, Ganessa Bryant, Sarah Sockbeson, George Neptune and Eric “Otter” Bacon.

Each of these artists was commissioned to create a masterwork for the exhibit section that showcases their work. This piece along with other baskets made by the artist from private and institutional collections traces how his or her work has evolved. Each exhibit section also features a basket made by the person who taught them how to make baskets. Transcending Traditions explores the new directions that these innovative artists are taking the tradition in the face of environmental and economic challenges.

Transcending Traditions is supported by the National Museum of American Indian’s Indigenous Contemporary Art Program.
