Comfort Zones: Textiles in the Canadian Landscape

Marijke Kerkhoven & Sarah Quinton

The fascinating story of the complex relationship of Canadians to their country and its environment is told through textiles. It is a story based not only on the search for personal comfort in a harsh environment but on the search for beauty and solace. Artists range from Albert Lohnes (b. 1894) to Emily Carr and Joyce Wieland. With analyses of individual works and artist biographies.
