Artist Demonstration: Penny Minner Splint Basketry and Cornhusk Work

Written By Editor on 8/1/23 | 8/1/23


Saturday and Sunday August 5th and 6th


HOWES CAVE — Penny Minner is fluent in both traditional and non-traditional forms of expression including basketry, cornhusk doll making, beadwork, watercolor, and computer graphics.  A member of the Seneca Nation, Penny is one of a small number of individuals who have been working to restore the art of basketry in her community. She also carries on a family tradition of cornhusk work.


Penny is a founder and board member of the Native Roots Artist Guild.  Her work is in several private collections and the permanent collection of the National Museum of the American Indian Smithsonian (Washington, DC), the New York State Museum (Albany, NY) and the Iroquois Museum (Howes Cave, NY).  Penny is the recipient of a Creatives Rebuild NY Artist Employment Grant (2023), a program that enabled her to be our featured guest at the Iroquois Museum on August 5&6, 2023.
