Dorothy Gill Barnes – In Nature – Main gallery

Born in Iowa in 1927, and now settled in Ohio, Dorothy Gill Barnes is a veritable geyser of ideas. Well known as a basket maker, she is an equally skilled tree surgeon. Her focus on baskets and wood sculpture grew out her experience as a parent and teacher – drawing, sewing, and weaving with maidenhair ferns on a loom and looking to traditional, functional Native American baskets for inspiration. Gradually, Dorothy began experimenting with stands of trees that were soon to be logged – cutting carving, and drawing on the bark of saplings.
