Art that captures Alberta’s vanishing grain elevators will be showing next month at the Gallery on Main in Lacombe. In her show Disappearing Sentinels, Kristina Steinbring depicts the towering wooden structures that were once part of Alberta’s rural skyline in large-scale oil paintings. The old-style grain elevators were a “once proud symbol of the prairies, and centre of so many farming communities, soon to be lost forever,” said Steinbring, an Ontario native now based in Alberta. “My goal is to pay my respect to this incredible piece of Alberta history.” The show goes from Feb. 1 to 21. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, Feb. 1. For more information, call the gallery at 403-782-3402.
