CRESTVIEW HILLS | Sculptural baskets by Elizabeth Runyon will be featured in “Twisted Traditions” June 1-19 at the Eva G. Farris Art Gallery at Thomas More College. The exhibit opens with a reception, free and open to the public, 4-7 p.m. Monday, June 1.
Runyon grew up in Maysville and lives in Oxford, Ohio, with her husband Randy, a Maysville native. Her sculptural artworks are woven from reed and based on traditional Appalachian ribbed egg basket techniques.
She has had previous solo exhibits at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts and Zanesville Museum of Art, both in Ohio. Her work has also appeared in several juried regional shows including the Manifest Gallery, Red Tree Art Gallery and Coffee Shop, and Kennedy Heights Art Center, all located in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Runyon currently has work in Fantastic Fibers 2015 at the Yeiser Art Center in Paducah and “Best of 2015” at the Ohio Craft Museum in Columbus, Ohio. Her piece “Rocket” will appear in the National Basketry Organization’s “All Things Considered VIII” in St. Paul, Minn., and Boston, Mass., later this summer.
