From the website: The second of three exhibitions that form the series 100% Natural, the 2001 exhibition Comfort Zones: textiles in the Canadian landscape presents a wide-ranging collection of textile icons of Canadian identity. These textiles were created so their makers could better identify with and adapt to the Canadian environment: the weather, politics, spirituality, economies, personal and collective identities, and the landscape itself. The work of six Canadian artists is exhibited alongside these unique Canadian historic textiles. The remarkably interlinked works by Dorothy Caldwell, Emily Carr, David Hannan, Albert Lohnes, Lyla Rye and Joyce Wieland, along with the great many anonymously created objects in the exhibition, are rich legacies that shape this country's cultural landscape.
