Creating this Website

Creating this website felt like creating a work of art – and that is exactly what we feel this website has become as we share the stories of Yvette Moore, her family and all the artisans we showcase in our incredible historical building. Take your time as you browse through all the pages and especially the videos of 11 of our artisans as they welcome us all into their studios and display the passion of what makes them create their works, tell their stories. With the support of Tourism Saskatchewan, we feel that we have accomplished what we were striving for – to educate our viewers about the creative space that our artisans live and breath in as they passionately hand make their works of art.

E – The Engine Pulls Empty cars up to the elevators

“Grain elevators were the first prairie skyscrapers.  Sometimes referred to as “prairie giants”, they stand out clearly against the flat landscape.  You can see them from great distances.  Farmers haul grain to the elevator by truck.  Here it is weighed, graded, cleaned and stored until it is loaded into railway cars.  The engineer will pull the loaded grain cars all the way to a seaport terminal where the grain will be transferred onto ocean going ships.”

– Jo Bannatyne-Cugnet

This painting is one of 26 paintings reproduced in “A Prairie Alphabet” – an awarding winning children’s book written by Jo Bannatyne-Cugnet and published by Tundra Books. It was the winner of the Mr. Christie’s Book Award for Best Canadian Children’s Book for Illustration in 1992.

Description

What would be more interesting than “Eyebrow” if one needed to find an elevator that had to start with the letter “E” for an alphabet book?  The easy part was taking the photos of the elevator but trying to arrange for the arrival of the engine of the train proved to be a challenge.  After checking with CP Rail for the schedule of the next train to pass through, I ventured off to Eyebrow – a 45 minute drive from Moose Jaw.  I patiently waited for over 2 hours before it made it’s way through.
