Arni Brownstone studies several important war paintings and artifact collections of the Tsuu T’ina (Sarcee) that provide insight into the changing relations b... [READ MORE]

    Edmonton, circa 1910, never thought of itself as small. The citizens were young, an unlikely concentration of resourceful individuals attracted from older places where they'd have to wait for middle age to be leaders. The young city comes alive in the stories they enjoyed telling on themselves as their budding metropolis remained stuck at the bud stage for half a century. These stories are chucklers, which may seem trifles, but add up to a warm, authentic portrait of Edmonton... [READ MORE]

His supple lines meander and flit over scapes of love, home, family, and... [READ MORE]
