Animal. Vegetable. mineral.

Not to be confused with the BBC quiz show from the 1950’s, Animal. Vegetable. Mineral. is a new art exhibition curated and presented by The Snips exploring the fiber and textile artists’ connection to the natural resources of the earth via human consumption, creation, and destruction. Fiber art would not exist without these resources since humans began domesticating livestock and creating garments. Now, we face a future of destruction because of consumerism and overproduction. This exhibition explores our roots while acknowledging our potential future. Bit broad, innit?
