The World Beyond is What I See…Presented by Laurie Blondeau

July 1 – September 24

Laurie Blondeau has spent most of her life with attention to detail, approaching life head down raptured by her inner world. Several life altering experiences created a deepened sense of love for Nature and her own inner essence. Her art is an expression of that essence; broad gestures, intense colours with contrast, and limitless expansion of space in a medium that has little forgiveness — watercolours.

This exhibit exposes our interactions with Nature. If one looks closely there are intense striking depictions of what is alive and what is not. The exposure of white indicates missing elements, what may not be around. Yet if we are mindful of Natures’ existence we could continue to play forever in its abundance. Our world is a precious entity, fragile, unique and slowly losing its breath amongst human occupation.

From the Prairies to the Trenches - Part IV: Vimy, Passchendaele and Conscription January 1917 to December 1917

 

This video, the fourth in a five-part series on the First World War, recalls the events of 1917, as seen by both those serving in war-torn Europe and on the home front here in Saskatchewan. The video features a rich selection of documentary material held by the Saskatchewan Archives and its partners which relate to Saskatchewan’s involvement in the First World War.

The video, along with the previous parts can be viewed online on the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan’s YouTube channel.  Also, be sure to visit their website for more information regarding this video series.
