Canadian Pacific

Making Of Canadian Pacific

‘Canadian Pacific’ is an original work by stained glass artist Kelly Hutcheson. The inspiration behind this large-scale piece stems from Revelstoke’s deep connections to the railway. This large-scale Art Alleries commission challenged Hutcheson, known locally for her smaller intricate pieces of bears and mountainscapes, to create something on a much larger scale built to withstand the elements. In this film we glimpse the fascinating process of creating an epic stained glass work from inception through to completion.
