Artist Lecture with Martha Bird- Reclaiming Basketry: Working Through Stigma to Reach Creative Potential

  • When Thursday, March 1st, 5-7pm
  • Where StudioK
  • Cost Free

This presentation will focus on the impact of stigma on creative expression. Martha Bird uses her own personal experiences as well as research on the topic to challenge the everyday harmful references that contribute to perpetuating the negative stereotypes of a medium. Through the process of working through stigma, Bird will show how raising awareness and naming problems can help us achieve creative potential.  

Artist Bio:

Martha Bird is a self taught Minneapolis-based multidisciplinary artist who specializes in traditional and sculptural basketry.  Martha’s background of a masters degree in holistic nursing weaves together her basketry as representation of healing in body, mind and soul to invite wholeness in both the work and in herself. Martha explores basketweaving as a blend of the traditional forms of the medium with avant-garde practices, an experiment with materials, method and technique. Her work pushes the strictly utilitarian into contemporary art forms. Themes that can be seen in her work include: the individual is stronger in community, connections, art as a healing and creative force and the beauty of nature.  Martha’s current work is inspired by her month long trip to Ireland in June 2017 where she studied with four master willow basketmakers and a fiber artist.  Martha has exhibited with the National Basketry Organization, Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, Textile Center and Avivo ArtWorks.  She is committed to community and has been involved in the arts as a curator, writer, volunteer, organizer, teaching artist and arts advocate.
