The rest of the days of the National Basketry Organization's biennial conference were wonderful and I'm very glad for the chance to go. The seminars were interesting, the exhibit and reception at the Fuller Craft Museum was astounding, and the "gala" auction and dinner was very nice indeed. The exhibit is especially noteworthy for containing nearly as many traditional baskets (and ones by Native Americans) as contemporary art pieces. Photos from the exhibit and the gala are in sets at my Flickr account.

Also there are some photos from earlier in the day of the gala. The conference was at Stonehill College in Easton, MA, which is a rather modern campus but set in a rather out-of-the-way location. It's a fairly spread out campus, too, and I was driving from one building to another when I spotted an outsized bird perched on the corner of the dining hall:

I'm glad it didn't mind the photo session, but it seems to be very true that birds of prey know they're cool:
