Homeage to the Golden Fleece is a collaborative exhibition by visual artist Leone Allen and fibre artist Chris Smythe.The exhibition aims to promote the wool industry and traditional methods of use of Merino wool. The exhibition features detailed drawings of shearers and their tools, as well as Smythe’s beautifully hand-crafted woollen pieces. Smythe even spins the wool herself! These artists long to reignite the contemporary and historical relevance of this industry to Australia, and to generate support and appreciation.
