Join us Thursday, January 5, for a conversation between Artist Collective of Westport's Miggs Burroughs and Tina Puckett, whose Speak to Me series is currently being exhibited in the South Gallery. There will be an artist reception with wine and snacks at 6:30 pm, followed by the conversation between Miggs and Tina at 7 pm.
You may register for the event HERE.
Puckett's work is on view in the Library's South Gallery from December 7 through February 28, 2023.
Puckett looks for natural materials, grown locally, that she incorporates into different woven forms. A favored material is the Bittersweet vine which she uses to create fantastic forms in tune to the harmony of shapes, forms, and colors of the vines and reeds, resulting in one of a kind sculptured vessels and objects.
Puckett’s work has been on display at the Cheongju International Craft Biennial in South Korea, Moesgard Museum in Denmark, and more locally at The Hill-Stead Museum, Bruce Museum and Slater Museum. She has also had showing in many galleries including Noble Horizons Gallery, Westport Arts Center, River Street Gallery, Doncaster Gallery, Washington Art Association, and Kent Art Association.
The featured image, by Puckett, is titled "Waves of Many Colors," and the second image is "Garden of Flowers".
Puckett specializes in baskets woven from natural materials, in particular the bittersweet vine.
