I have a wonderful artist friend here in Lethbridge who inspires me every time I am lucky enough to get out of my hermit shell and visit with her! Or, as it turned out, on Monday, she dropped by.
This morning she wrote on other matters, but mentioned her friend's daughter, Erin Pankratz-Smith, a wonderful mosaic artist who was commissioned by the Edmonton International Airport (my hometown) - to create a very large mosaic. (30 panels with 3000-4000 individual tiles per panel for a total of !!!! 100,000 tiles!!! ) The video below, created by Greg Southam is a time-lapsed feature capturing the installation of her art. It was unveiled this past Monday.
