A Prairie Success Story
Of course, so many people would say there is nothing to do in a small, isolated prairie hamlet. How could you possibly keep yourself engaged and interested when you can literally walk from one end of town to the other in less than five minutes? I can promise you that Rosebud will surprise and delight you.
Rosebud is a prairie success story. A small hamlet that has re-invented itself and has created an oasis of creativity and community generosity. The entire town thrives because they care about what they have created.
So, take a couple of days, book a room at a local B&B, take in the current stage production, enjoy dinner, take a walk down the main street and explore the Akokiniskiway Art Gallery. Get to know Rosebud.

"Gentle Scenes Gentle Dreams" is the title of Laura and Terry's exhibition at the Akokiniskiway Art Gallery until the end of October 2016. Below is their artists' statement:
Laura and Terry Bachynski are both heavily influenced by their daily experiences from their travels within and beyond Alberta’s boarders. The married couple travel often and widely, frequently with paints and canvas in tow, seeking out new experiences.
Laura is often drawn to the stories of intimate spaces and images that translate to the detailed attention to mood and personal experience in her images. Often you feel that you can sit and rest inside one of Laura’s paintings and become a part of the setting.
Terry looks at the landscape as an inspiration to allow his imagination to create images of flowing skies, rolling hills and distant horizons. Many of his paintings, although inspired by his experience in the landscape, manifest in an almost abstract interpretation of all that surrounds us.
Laura’s artistic expression is founded in the intimacies of life’s scenes while Terry’s interpretations look beyond the physical space and explore the energy that lies behind it. Both artists, in their own way, praise God for the beauty around us and endeavor to share their experience of The Great Creation with others through their works.
