Prairie And Beyond II
Prairie & Beyond II, the print exhibition of Mike Grandmaison's fine art photography will open at the Fort la Reine Museum August 1. Just in time to honour the harvest, we are inspired by the nourishing prairies, and dramatic landscape that defines us. Along with prairie images, this month the Fort la Reine Museum will have special musical performances by Deb Romeyn, naturalist readings from author Bill Stillwell, and field demonstrations of our Allis Chalmer's equipment collection during Wonder in Allisland on August 24!...so much to see and do at the Museum.
