Contemporary basketry artist Matt Tommey, located at #160 in the Riverview Station Building, is expanding his work in fiber by exploring the use of encaustic wax with his natural creations. For over 20 years, Matt's award-winning work has focused primarily on the use of invasive natural materials like kudzu in addition to various locally available, sustainably harvested barks and vines. Now he's taking it to the next level by combining the natural materials he loves so much with the ancient modern medium of encaustic wax.

For more information on Matt's work, visit him in his studio and gallery Monday - Saturday from 10am - 4pm at 191 Lyman Street Suite #160 - Riverview Station Building. Shadowbox-baskets
