GeoPhysical

‘GeoPhysical’, pays tribute to geology, and the scenic and economic riches it provides to western Canada. FAN members were challenged to interpret, in cloth and thread, “the earth and the forces that shape it” without reference to subjects man-made or currently living.
Only pieces relevant to this theme were accepted, and the exhibition was widely praised both for its cohesiveness and for the variety of subjects chosen and techniques employed as artists expressed their own interpretations of the theme.
The 46 fibre art pieces by 39 artists were seen by more than 5,000 visitors during the 2010 convention of the Canadian Quilters’ Association in Calgary, Alberta.
