Akokiniskway Gallery

The historic United Church is now the Akokiniskway Art Gallery and a recording studio. It also serves as the rehearsal area for Rosebud Masterworks (community) Choir and Rosa Cantorum (women's choir). Annually, there are art shows featuring Alberta artists in the spring, summer and fall. The Gallery is open to the public for two and a half hours before each Opera House performance. It is also available to rent for private functions.

The fall show at the Akokiniskway Gallery is Gentle Scenes, Giant Dreams featuring the work of Laura and Terry Bachynski. A few samples of their work are below.

About the Artists: The paintings represented in this exhibit speak to a broad spectrum of artistic inspiration. 
Laura and Terry Bachynski are both heavily influenced by their daily experiences from their travels within and beyond Alberta’s borders. 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.
