Henderson’s ‘Storm in the Qu’Appelle Valley’ (25
x 33 inches) conveys the power of nature as a thunderstorm
approaches down the valley. In the many years since the painting
was donated to Prairie Christian Training Centre, its value has
increased greatly. The Centre is not really equipped to display
and protect this piece of art and would like to sell it.
We are happy to report that it has been
purchased and will be soon going to it's new home (May2010).
To learn more about James Henderson, check out
the McKenzie Art Gallery and their current exhibit:
James Henderson: Wicite Owapi Wicasa: the man who paints the old
men. This is a major exhibition of the portraits,
landscape paintings, and commercial work of Scottish-born artist
James Henderson, Saskatchewan’s pre-eminent first-generation
artist. The exhibition runs May 1 to September 5 and even
includes a tour of the Qu’Appelle Valley on June 12, visiting
areas where Henderson painted.
We have had the painting refreshed/restored by
Brenda Smith from the McKenzie Art Gallery and it is currently
worth approximately $10,000.
