Take a Journey Tonight!
May 11, 2012
Tonight at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is an exhibition that has been 30 years in the making. Peace Country residents Carmen Haakstad and Jim Stokes have been lifelong friends who made a pact one autumn afternoon in 1980; three decades later, the fruits of their life experiences are coming to fruition.
Fans can expect works that will tell the story of the bountiful prairies that Carmen and Jim have grown up in; inspired by the changing landscape of The Emerson Trail.
Journey 2012 is somewhat of a literal translation, after 30 years the art has come full circle and reflected different periods in both of the artist’s lives.
Art lovers can expect some pieces that uniquely reflect the beauty of the Peace Region but also some surprises from the artists; many know Jim Stokes for his intricate landscapes however, for Journey 2012 he is promising something out of the ordinary, which is sure to take this opening to the next level.
