Living in this region, we get used to hearing about Native American basket weaving.
It literally comes with the territory.
But how often do we really take a look at this intricate and remarkable art form? You have a good chance to do just that right now. “American Masterpieces: The Artistic Legacy of California Indian Basketry,” opened in November at Ukiah’s Grace Hudson Museum and will remain on display through Feb. 27.
The exhibition, which originated in Sacramento, includes more than 90 baskets chosen from thousands in the California State Parks collection there.
The Grace Hudson Museum, at 431 S. Main St. in Ukiah, also displays its own permanent collection of Pomo Indian basketry.
Admission: $4; $10 per family; $3 for students and seniors. Information: www.gracehudsonmuseum.org, (707) 467-2836.
