The Folkstore Artist Spotlight (FAS) is a special showcase of work from a local artist or group of related artists. These exhibits highlight the local living traditions of the North Country through locally-made products which are on view and for sale in The TAUNY Center. The Folkstore Artist Spotlight Series also allows TAUNY to present a greater range of work by these local producers.

The current Folkstore Artist Spotlight exhibit features a variety of carefully crafted baskets made by Sue Ulrich of Boonville, NY. Sue makes baskets of all shapes and sizes that are utilitarian and made from reed, with the exception of a few baskets made from black ash trees. She discovered her love of basket making after years of working in journalism and business when she took her first basket making workshop at the Dodge-Pratt-Northam Art and Community Center in Boonville. From there Sue spent years mastering this traditional art and has learned new techniques studying with Marcia Walligory, Flo Hope, and many of the great teachers at the Stowe Basket Festival. This Folkstore Artist Spotlight exhibit includes a wide range of baskets from pie baskets, to traditional Adirondack packbaskets, to carrier baskets with colorful details, and more.
All work on view is also for sale. The Folkstore Artist Spotlight series highlights the work of regional artists and artisans and allows TAUNY to present a greater range of work by these local artists and producers.
