Sasha Baskin’s weaving and drawing work explores the intersection of craft and classical rendering. She uses traditional weaving and lacemaking processes in combination with source imagery from reality television to address the intersections between analog and digital technologies. Trained in classical drawing, Baskin received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014. Transitioning to craft and studying weaving, natural dyes, and ikat dye resist processes, she received her Master of Fine Arts from VCU in 2018. Her exhibition record includes solo, two-person, and group shows at Blue Spiral Gallery in Asheville NC, IS Projects in Ft Lauderdale FL, and the Visual Arts Center in Austin TX. She was a 2018-2019 Artist-in-Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and a 2020 and 2022 Winter Resident at Penland School of Craft. Baskin lives and works in Baltimore, MD.
