This exhibit facilitated by renowned basket weaver Corine Pearce.

Corner Gallery, 201 S. State Street, Ukiah
Opening Event Friday November 4th 5pm – 8pm, November 4th – November 29th 2022
The Pomo Weavers Society exhibits a collection of weavings and baskets created by local members. The Pomo basket-weaving tradition in Northern California has been passed down for generations. Local Weavers use the art of basketry as a vessel for healing and understanding through the holistic practice of weaving, from native plant cultivation and preparation to weaving in community. Because of the botanical diversity of the area where the Pomo people lived — now Lake, Mendocino and Sonoma counties – baskets are made from more types of materials than anywhere else in the world. Visit the Corner Gallery in the month of November 201 S. State Street Ukiah, 11am -5pm Tuesday thru Saturday.

Current Exhibition: “Memento Mori,” which in Latin means to “remember that you must die.” We seek to explore the inevitability of death and its impact on all of us. During the pandemic, we’ve had to let go of old ways of thinking and being in the world and adopt new ways of living. Death, in all its forms, can provide an opportunity to adapt, appreciate, honor and value the lives we are currently living. Remembering that we all will die one day allows us to be present in the world and more present in our lives. Death reminds us that each moment of life is sacred. The exhibition will be on display through Sunday, November 20th. Gallery hours are Friday 12-8 p.m., Saturday 12-6 p.m., and Sunday 12-4 p.m.
