Hunting Snarks in the Antipathies

New Zealander David Elliot, whose book Snark: Being a true history of the expedition that discovered the Snark and the Jabberwock … and its tragic aftermath won several prestigious awards, has a Snark: A Victorian Odyssey exhibition currently running at the Ashburton Art Gallery, November 5 – February 10. It is presented in the form of a Cabinet of Curiosities and features several artifacts from Otago Museum plus other objects made by his friends. A photographer, Chris Gilman Gable, has made a short documentary on David and the exhibit, if you don’t happen to be in the neighborhood.
