But Can They Do It Underwater?

Visual Arts Center's show is more than just baskets.



Remember that imaginary Basket Weaving 101 course you and your buddies joked about signing up for back in college as a means to slack off for the semester? Turns out that actually could have been the means to a fairly respected profession. Intricately coiled sweet-grass baskets are just a sample of the art being exhibited at the Science Museum of Virginia for the 44th annual Visual Arts Center Craft + Design Show. Showcasing ceramics, jewelry, glass, fiber, leather and wooden creations, artists from 19 states display their mixed-media works Friday, Nov. 21, starting at noon. $12. 353-0094.
