Fiber artists protest global warming

I actually like TreeHugger‘s headline better, but what can you do, they thought of it first…

Fiber Arctic: Seattle Fiber Artists in Stitches Over Global Warming:

Seattleites are in for a luscious, though-provoking treat: Tomorrow marks the opening of “Fiber Arctic,” a group installation featuring 20 fiber artists pondering climate change and the way it’s reshaping the Arctic landscape.

Exhibiting at Schmancy Gallery until July 9, the show will include artists like Jenny Hart, Heidi Kenney, Nicole Licht, Vivienne Strauss, and Craft’s Becky Stern.
