Maggie Dixon | Grasslands: West Block

Contenu non disponible en français

Grasslands National Park represents for me the heart of my relationship with the prairies. My maternal grandparents farmed near Admiral, and my mother was born at Cadillac. I met my husband when I was living in Ponteix and he was living in Shaunavon, and our first days together were spent hiking in the park. “Grasslands: West Block” is a pillow made of moose hide and muslin printed with a satellite image of the west block, trimmed with prairie rattlesnake print and stuffed with mixed grasses. It represents the sense of comfort and connection I feel with this special place.
