at the grunt gallery’s 30th Anniversary Party
In celebration of the City of Vancouver and the 30th Anniversary of the grunt gallery, Sola Fiedler is pleased to present the Vancouver Tapestry. Inspired by Vancouver during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the tapestry took the 78-year-old more than 5000 hours to weave, beginning in May 2009.
Using yarn from recycled sweaters, Fiedler meticulously weaves large-scale cityscapes in pinpoint detail, from the number of floors in a building to the colour of the trees and water. She is best known for her tapestry tributes to the cities that have hosted Olympic Games, including Salt Lake City, Utah in 2002, and Sydney, Australia in 2000. Her work captures the architectural elements and spirit of each city at that moment in time.
