Behind the Wool – Honoring the Integrity of Montana Sheep Ranchers

By Meghan Purcell & Lauren Lipscomb
May 12 – June 30, 2017

The work of Fiber Artist, Meghan Purcell, and Photographer, Lauren Lipscomb, is cultivated through the ideals of sustainable and intentional practices. Shaped from a collective vision, Behind the Wool emerged as an artistic collaboration and investigation into the challenges Montana sheep farmers face in present times. With cooperation from six local farmers, this vision developed into an opportunity to understand their personal efforts and involvement to combat these struggles, as well as the adaptations deemed necessary to preserve and sustain Montana sheep ranching.

Free and open to the public.

Opening Reception:
