Rich colours and arresting designs capture the mood of celebration and joy that characterizes this photographic record of contemporary religious works of art. Chosen for their excellence in design and stitchery, these works represent the achievements of artists who have created art, in fabric, for places of worship. This book celebrates this important artistic expression, a significant part of our heritage.
Pieces are selected from communities across Canada: from a small parish on a Micmac reserve in Nova Scotia to a large urban synagogue in Vancouver; from the igloo-shaped cathedral in Iqaluit to a suburban church nestled beside a wildlife march in southwestern Ontario.
About the Author:
The three authors bring to this subject a variety of experience in fine art, in writing and editing, and in the organization of artistic projects in the community. Over the past twenty years they hav curated no less than twelve exhibitions of contemporary Canadian Liturgical art.
A long association with Canadian fibre artists, whose work for the most part has not previously been chronicled, has give the authors the inspiration for this unique publication, Art of the Spirit. Joan, Helen and Judy reside in Toronto with their families.
