Date: Saturday, February 10, 2024
Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Explore strange weather events, odd houses, women, human forms with birds and moody, and abandoned landscapes/structures.

Do you sense it? Prairie Gothic is known for the feeling of displacement, unexplained events, forbidden sexuality on the vast, cold, prairies. And secrets. There is always a secret. And a prairie town, a brooding husband, a caged wife. (Cecelia Frey)

Come learn, listen, feel and see prairie gothic art and literature at the Airdrie Public Library through the art of Stacey Walyuchow and writing of Wendy McGrath. Both will be in attendance and sharing this landscape, its stories and how both influence their work.

Stacey Walyuchow’s art will be on display in the library for the month of February and she will be running a mixed media workshop February 7th 6:15-8:30 in the Program Room

Wendy McGrath is the inaugural winner of the Prairie Grindstone Prize and her three most recent novels are fine examples of prairie gothic writing.

This is a relaxed, exploratory afternoon!

One person in attendance will leave with an 8x10 painting of Stacey's and all three novels of Wendy's. Do join us.
