upper panel by Meredith Filshie
bottom panel by Robin Field
It is a piece that I am including in the France show, Tradition in Transition.
What I liked about it was the fact that 20 women worked on it together. Each created a quadrant in textile of the painting entitled Saint Sauveur by Anne Savage, a contemporary of the Group of Seven.

It is all stitched!
-something I missed when I saw the photograph
Having the piece there in front of me was so much better than seeing the picture! There is such detail in every panel.

All twenty panels fit together harmoniously yet each is an individual work of art and reflects the artist's style.
