Stuffed animals come in all shapes, sizes, colors…. species…. but we’re venturing to guess that you have yet to encounter a stuffed YETI. Don’t worry! They’re friendly! They haven’t teeth, nor claws, nor even any buttons or hard parts– so they’re as friendly as friendly gets– infant friendly!
Local artist Jennifer Campbell began her line of plushies to accompany the 2012 launch of her “Yeti Leaves Home” children’s book and the tandem exhibition at Practical Art of the original watercolor illustrations. Since then, she’s made honey bears, penguins, and other critters to keep Yeti company, and now once again, her watercolor illustrations are gracing our walls this month. She’s venturing from fictional critters to factual histories with her show, “Les Femmes Fierce: an exploration of female trailblazers”. While there isn’t yet a plushie for Nellie Bly or Grace Hay Drummond, you can still pick up an adventurous Yeti to capture the spirit of striking out on ones own, against the odds.
