Now, I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of Glen Scrimshaw’s works. The paintings are, however, very popular. Just goes to show that everyone has different tastes in art. Glen Scrimshaw’s paintings and prints showcase the powerful force of nature, which is clearly evidenced by the choice of subject matter. The forests, which dominate northern Saskatchewan are prominently featured in many works. Frequently, the power of nature is brought to the attention of the onlooker by incorporating lightning, a common feature of the prairie skies during summer. The beautiful yet mysterious northern lights are also a common theme in these works of art. Often combined with an evening or nighttime setting, the paintings evoke a special sense of the nature we in Saskatchewan enjoy. To see examples of his artwork, head to his website showcase. Glen Scrimshaw offers small pieces like art cards as well as prints all the way up to original pieces, so there is something for everyone's price range.
Other works of art and pieces of history are available at Northcote Art ‘n Antiques. To see examples of the interesting objects available, visit the Northcote webpage listed above. During the summer, an ice cream stand is open, a playground is available for the kids, a picnic area and campground are open, and there is even an 18-hole mini-golf course. One stop traveling for the family, or at least a comfortable stop during a hectic sightseeing tour!
