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.

grain elevators – Beacons of the Prairies

Chris Attrell, Photographer

 

Rising above the landscape, the grain elevator heralds a time when wheat was king across the West. At their zenith, 5,758 of these prairie giants defined the economy and skyline of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

While many still stand, every year their numbers dwindle. Sometimes these towering signposts are all that is left of a town or hamlet once built around them. In this breathtaking photo collection, award-winning photographer Chris Attrell captures the haunting presence of those that remain to stand guard over an ever-changing agrarian lifestyle.

EVOCATIVE

“Chris Attrell has gone well beyond simply documenting the Canadian grain elevator. His evocative images show these aging prairie sentinels as monuments to a way of life that has mostly disappeared.”

— STEVE BOYKO, author, photographer

ICONIC

“Chris Attrell has captured the spirit of these iconic structures, offering a compelling glimpse of prairie heritage. Visually captivating, his photographs serve as an important documentary record of one of Canada’s most endangered buildings.”

— KRISTIN CATHERWOOD, folklorist and Heritage Saskatchewan’s Director of Living Heritage

STATUESQUE

“Nothing embodies the prairies more than open skies, dirt roads, and those tall, horizon gracing sentinels. Chris captures the statuesque nature of grain elevators that are unfortunately fading from our country’s landscapes. He has an eye for expertly

documenting the views that we have come to know and recognize before they are taken by wind, fire, or time.”

— MISHEYLA IWASIUK, photographer
