Quilt of Belonging Founding Artist, Esther Bryan Recognised For Her Contribution
Many of our members and followers attended the 2014 CAPAM Biennial Conference in Putrajaya, Malaysia, where they could not enter the main conference hall without passing the magnificent textile art installation called the Quilt of Belonging. The Quilt brought artistry and craftsmanship together from all over the Commonwealth and beyond. CAPAM is very proud to convey the news that, Esther Bryan, Quilt of Belonging’s founding artist and coordinator, has been awarded the Governor General’s Meritorious Service Medal, to honour her service to Canada. The Meritorious Service Decorations were created by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to recognize an individual for a remarkable achievement accomplished over a limited period of time. The presentation ceremony will be at Rideau Hall in the coming year.
