artPICKSWTEXT2October features three outstanding basket artists: Carol Horvath, Mariana Mace, and Vivian Byers, dedicated to the history and traditions associated with their particular area of interest. All three collect most or all of their own materials, and do the processing, dying and storing of each – a labor intensive process, but one which helps connect them to the final pieces. Associated activities through the month include: Carol Horvath window show; basket talk by Mariana Mace on basket identification and care;  basket classes by each of the artists. Hours: Tues-Sun 11am-5pm (Closed on Mon)  River Gallery 184 Main Street, Independence  503 838 6171
