Leap and the Loom Will Appear runs Sept. 21 to Oct. 2, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., at 1359 Cartwright St.on Granville Island. An opening reception takes place Sept. 20, 6 to 9 p.m. and Sola will be in attendance.

LEAP AND THE LOOM WILL APPEAR is an exhibition by world-renowned, senior Canadian fibre artist Sola Fiedler, known for her tapestry tributes to cities that have hosted Olympic Games. Her work captures the architectural and spiritual elements of each city, at that moment in time. For the first time, Fiedler’s Las Vegas and Salt Lake City tapestries will be exhibited together, alongside the Vancouver tapestry, generously loaned for this exhibit by the Canuck Place. The iconic Canada 150 flag and the new Granville Island tapestry will also be presented with a retrospective of Sola’s earlier vintage works, totaling 17 pieces.
