Virtual Native American Artist Series: Sarah Sockbeson
December 5, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Sarah Sockbeson (Penobscot) is a basketmaker who has demonstrated and exhibited her work at various shows, museums and markets throughout the country. Sarah apprenticed with renowned basket maker Jennifer Neptune, who taught her the traditional way to gather, prepare, and weave ash splints into baskets. For each of her unique pieces, Sarah combines traditional materials and techniques, elements from nature, and influences of the modern world. As one of the featured artists in our Virtual Holiday Market, join Sarah, along with IAIS staff, for a Zoom-based presentation on how she brings an innovative and fresh approach to this timeless art form.
Through a series of virtual presentations scheduled throughout late November and early December of 2020, participating artists will discuss their artwork, and how they use it to express, preserve, and promote their cultural heritage and traditions in the digital age.
