Artist Talk: Sandra Sawatzky

Nine-years in the making, Sandra Sawatzky's 220-foot hand-embroidered The Black Gold Tapestry tells the story of how oil has impacted human civilizations around the world, from bitumen bubbling up in the waterways and marshes of Iraq 5,000 years ago to the enormous influence of oil on the global economy today. Examining how oil and natural gas have fueled human ingenuity, progress, warfare, disaster, prosperity and commerce across the globe, The Black Gold Tapestry highlights fascinating vignettes from the past and the present that will surprise and even delight viewers of this truly epic project. Join Sandra as she shares the exhaustive research and creation process of The Black Gold Tapestry, followed by an audience Q and A.
