“Curving in an arc about forty kilometers northeast of Regina, Saskatchewan, the Qu’Appelle Valley was formed by the retreat of the vast glaciers, leaving the Qu’Appelle River framed by deep, verdant hills and wooden coulees, creating picturesque vistas of hills, rivers and lakes in starling contrast to the windswept landscape of the plains” An excerpt from the exhibition, “Qu’Appelle: Tales of two valleys”. Co-curated by Dan Ring and Robert Stacey. Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. June 14th to September 3rd, 2002.
The one-acre site situated on the North Side of Last Mountain Lake located in the Qu’Appelle Valley system of southern Saskatchewan is rugged and steeply sloped. Views of the south and the west from this upper ledge of the Valley are expansive as the lake bleeds into the horizon.
The steep pitch of the Valley ensures that views to the lake will be maintained indefinitely, the landscape is native, having never been built upon or cultivated.
Surrounding slump zones restrict the building site to a 30’ x 50’ strip.
