Black Gold Tapestry


In May the Guild went on a field trip to the Glenbow Museum to see the Black Gold Tapestry exhibit.

Members had heard a great deal about the exhibit, even so we were still amazed by what we saw. Bravo to the Calgary artist Sandra Sawatsky, who thought up the concept of showing the history of oil in the form of a tapestry, who thoroughly researched and prepared the exhibit and painstakingly and lovingly stitched this masterpiece.

Here are a few pictures of the field trip.
