Julie Edwards and Joe Feddersen’s story baskets are displayed at the Greater Leavenworth Museum. Each basket is woven with brightly colored symbols and imagery, with excerpts of each story below the baskets.

A colorful, new exhibit draws visitors as soon as they step through the entrance at the Greater Leavenworth Museum, 735 Front St. The exhibit features nine story baskets, eight of which were created by artist Julie Edwards, a member of the Colville Tribe and a descendant of the p’squosa (Wenatchi), Nez Perce and Yakima tribes.

One story basket was made by Edwards’ mentor, Joe Feddersen, a renowned artist and fellow Colville Tribal member known for his painting, printmaking, photography, collage pieces and glasswork.
