Hot Art: Symbolically Canadian at the Textile Museum

Grant Heaps’ Stag

MAY 23 TO SEPTEMBER 30 The icons of our country have long been ingrained in its citizens through the arts. You’ll see that first-hand in the latest exhibition at the Textile Museum of Canada, which presents functional and artistic quilts, mats and other household articles that comprise a compendium-in-cloth of our national history, community traditions and personal connections to the land we live in. Augmenting the display, dubbed Dreamland: Textiles and the Canadian Landscape, are diverse works by 10 contemporary artists, including Douglas Coupland, Michael Snow, Barbara Todd and Grant Heaps—whose Stag wall hanging, we think you’ll agree, could only have been made by a Canadian.
