We had the honour of being invited
the Grand Opening
Prairie Winds: The Sculptor and The Poet
This was a joint effort
Ken Frederickson and Ovide Mercredi.
We got to know Ken and Heather when we went to Quebec together in 2015.
I often tease him that I get the honour of 'knowing him when....'
Ken's sculptures were paired with poems written by Ovide.
This is Ken's first Gallery Show held at the Shurniak Art Gallery
|Ovide Mercredi , Bill Shurniak, and Ken Frederickson|
This Gallery is an amazing venue tucked in the heart of Assiniboia, Sk
Bill Shurniak has collected works of art from all over the world
created a fabulous home for his collection.
He purchased Ken's 'Fly Fishing'
They will be on permanent display at their new home!!
Ken has had a whirlwind experience in his short time of sculpting.
All the stars alined in only a couple of years
was touching to see, how much this day meant to Ken and his family!!
These are some of Ken's other sculptures on display till November 25,2017
'Fancy Dancer '
If the Gallery is ever looking for a fund raiser.....
What I wouldn't do........
For a private tour with Bill Shurniak
he talks about where, when and how he acquired his fabulous collection.
He is rich with knowledge!!
I wanted to take pictures to show you all of his works
you are just going to have to make the trek yourself!!
It was a great day for a drive.
The fall colors were fabulous.
There were so many old homesteads tucked in the rolling hills.
If those houses could talk....
Our area has demolished most old farmsites....such a shame.
Just before heading home.....
Vern and Karen asked to sit at our table.
There were 120 people in attendance and what luck to have these two bless our table!
In about 3 sentences, we were talking about Bali!!
These adventurers had cycled Indonesia for a month
were a wealth of knowledge!
Thank you, Vern and Karen!!
NOW I am excited....29 days to go!!
I ordered the book on the way home!!
Thanks for making a great day even better...
