The future may be filled with uncertainty, but at least there will be fantastical animals and a new cuisine built around them. “Speculative Biology” at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction features Adam Blue’s Cookbook 2314, an artist book filled with recipes for eating the peculiar critters of the future. Blue, who is education director at AVA Gallery in Lebanon, N.H., notes that his inventive culinary exercises “provide a snapshot into one survivor’s experience, and his attempts to restore humanity to our future selves through eating and food.” Shown alongside the cookbook are drawings by Luke Eastman, a debut exhibit that includes “alien wildlife, dinosaurs and marooned space explorers,” rendered with intricate detail. Eastman is an art instructor at the Richmond Middle School in Hanover, N.H.
