In the Gallery
The mirror image of 'boom' is 'bust'. This series of photographs explores the effects that oil and gas have on rural communities in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Valerie Zink and Rick Pelletier have focused on both the positive and negative impact on people due to the boom in industry and the influx of transient population. This exhibition contains several photos taken in our area including one entitled "Centre Street".
Thank you to our Gallery Sponsor of the Month:
The Grand Coteau Heritage & Cultural Centre is located in the heart of Shaunavon, Saskatchewan. The Centre houses a museum, art gallery and the Shaunavon Branch of the Chinook Regional Library. Our collection is multi-disciplinary, including artifacts relating to the human history of Shaunavon, fine arts and natural history specimens of the area. A variety of programs and tours are offered in association with our collection, making us more than a collection of objects. Tours are offered on a regular basis throughout the year to school students and can also be provided to other groups upon request. Through our educational programming, we are able to provide opportunities for our public to enjoy the arts, as well as the natural history and the human history of our area.
GCHCC is also a popular locale for community events and special programming including Family Day, Canada Day, Boomtown Days, Halloween and December’s Parade of Lights.
Staff and volunteers work together to “Link Community with Culture”.
