Home Land

July 22 - October 22, 2017

On view at Asheville Art Museum On the Slope (175 Biltmore Avenue, Asheville 28801)

Inspired by the Museum’s recent acquisition Home Land, a cutting-edge contemporary basket by Eastern Band Cherokee artist Shan Goshorn, this exhibition explores the connections that southeastern Native artists have to their ancestral homelands. The works on view are drawn primarily from the collection of Lambert Wilson, a passionate collector of southeastern Native art for over 30 years.
