Sybaris Gallery
Mounts 'Basketry'

The Sybaris Gallery is
mounting "Basketry: An Ex-
panding Definition" through
Dec. 5.
Six fiber artists explore the
question of what a basket
means when it is no longer
only a container.
Carol Eckert has developed
a trademark; she integrates
stacked animals of some
mythical origin into the
basket component of her
work. The containers may be
open cups held by pink birds
with large bills or carried by
leopards or they might have
tightly lidded tops where
tongue-flicking dragons
guard entry to the vessel's
mouth.
Priscilla Henderson's rattan
and maple baskets are known
for their lines and Oriental
sensibility.
John McQuire's basket
forms are based on 18th cen-
tury designs, particularly
those of the Shakers. Using a
unique combination of black
ash, casaba rugosa and
leather, he has designed a
series of contemporary
baskets and art neckpieces.
Judy Mulford combines
ceramic parts with coiled pine
needles (an ancient basketry
technique) to create spiritual
looking vessels. Many of her
baskets have figures and
scenes engraved in clay
reminiscent of a lot of tribal
art.
Bird Ross combines com-
mercial fabric and densely
overstitches it with many col-
ors of thread. The fabrics' col-
ors and textures are trans-
formed; the baskets can even
be punched and changed by
being turned inside out.
Diane Sheehan has kept
her work free of any literal in-
terpretation of the word
basket. She has been
transforming the crossing of
the threads into containers
which evolve in a concise and
measured way. They are
puzzles for the visually
literate.
She says her work refers as
much to her ideas about con-
tainment qualities of clothing
as they do to any notion of
baskets.
The Sybaris Gallery is at
301 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak,
544-3388; gallery hours are
Tues. - Sat., 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Capt. Orde Wingate, the
British officer who organized
and trained the Hagana into
a disciplined self-defense
force during the 1930s, was
nicknamed Hayedid ("The
Friend") by the members of
the Yishuv.
