Tallgrass Art Gallery represents not only artists who work in oils, watercolors, sculpture and photography, we also represent several very talented fine craftspeople. Creating pieces in pottery, gourds, art jewelry, artisian leatherwork and basketry, they display an understanding of form, color and design.
Often fine crafts are overlooked. The artists who create them carry on traditions that reach back through time. Pottery and basketry are some of the earliest known arts, and of course leather work. These craftspeople keep these traditions alive, while adding their own unique 'stamp' to every piece they create. Each new piece is an opportunity to experiment, building on techniques learned over years of work.
We at Tallgrass Gallery are proud to represent this group of artists and delighted to be able to share their work with our guests. From basketry to found wood objects, there is always something new and exciting to experience.
