Sisal & Tow

We're pleased to announce an exhibition of new work from local taxidermist/artist/designer Becca Barnet. Her studio, Sisal & Tow, creates one-of-a-kind work for private collectors, businesses and public spaces.  Please join us on July 24th for a reception from 5-8pm.

"Sisal & Tow's new body of work for Indigo & Cotton is a detail-oriented series reminiscent of a miniature natural history museum. The collection aims to send viewers to a macro world through an in depth look at preserved insects and birds, realistic plants and detailed drawings in pencil. Delicately exploring the relationship of the masculine and feminine in nature, the series also takes inspiration from the collecting phenomenon and presentation of specimens during the Victorian era."
