The Town’s July/August 2018 Featured Artist is Sheri Burns, a home-school mom of four. She became an accomplished basket maker after studying Appalachian culture with her children.
In an effort to add a hands-on element to her teaching, she signed up for a basket-making class and was immediately “hooked,” she says.
“I loved making baskets, and soon had a house full of them, and generously gifted them to all my relatives and friends!”
She is now a juried crafter at the Appalachian Arts Craft Center in Norris and teaches classes there and at Pellissippi State Community College. She is a member of the Tennessee Basket Association.
Each month, the work of an artist or group of artists is featured in specially-designed cases on the second floor of the rotunda in Farragut Town Hall. For more information about this exhibit or to access a Featured Artist application, visit townoffarragut.org/artsandculture or
