Welcome to the River Arts District in Asheville, North Carolina

The River Arts District Artists invite you to take A Closer Look into the lives of our artists and their work on the Second Saturday of each month.

December 14: Art for the Holidays

A Closer Look at Basketmaker Matt Tommey

Matt Tommey's handcrafted baskets are a whimsical collaboration of traditional Appalachian forms and wild, rustic, natural materials including natural vines (kudzu, honeysuckle, bittersweet, wisteria, grapevine) and bark (poplar, hickory, mimosa, and others).

Every basket begins with a walk in the woods, searching for just the right materials. Matt pays close attention to the materials he chooses in the harvesting process to ensure the most unique design features and highest quality possible. 

As a professional basketry artist, Matt is a leader in the contemporary basketry movement, serving on the Board of Directors of the National Basketry Organization and as an instructor at schools, guilds, and conventions around the country including Arromont, the John C. Campbell Folk School and the North Carolina Basketmakers Association Convention. Matt is a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and Piedmont Craftsmen. In 2010 he was recognized as an "American Artist Under 40" by the Smithsonian American Museum's Renwick Gallery.
