“Jackie Abrams has made a career of transforming simple materials into contemporary works of art. Abrams has spent the last 30 years stretching the term ‘basketry’ far beyond its traditional meaning, combining materials and techniques to create unexpected forms with rich texture and color. Abrams calls her work a progression of explorations.”
The Crafts Report, April 2005
"As a curator, I have enormous respect for Jackie as an artist, particularly in her ability to challenge herself by exploring new techniques and materials as a fiber artist. I also admire Jackie's ability to focus her creativity in a way that is congruent with her idealism and values."
Anne Majusiak, Curator, 2009
