The Canadian Group is a group of 15 quilt artists from across Canada. We're participating in an art quilt show in Tawain that runs through May, 2016.
The theme for the 2016 show, held by the Tawain Art Quilt Society (TAQS), is to encourage participants to expose humanity as both the problem and solution to a global issue.
The goal of the entrants was to ‘think about how to terminate or change the situation of global forest deterioration.” TAQS invited artists to contribute by revealing global environmental issues through quilting, exploring creativity from life and humanity, sowing seeds of hope and restoring the Earth’s ecology.
Here are some pictures from the show. You'll find links to profiles of the individual artists and their pieces at the bottom of the page.
