Prairie Sentinels:Grain Elevators
June 4 through July 6, 2019
Reception/Art Walk on Friday, June 28th
5:30 to 8pm
Looming over the surrounding country in a design that has changed very little, grain elevators reminded people of line-of-sight watchtowers keeping vigil, and were called “Prairie Sentinels”. Modern ones are clad in steel or made of concrete, but I have a weakness for the old wooden ones standing next to sidings where no locomotive has puffed in for a century or more. Crumbling stone sidings sprout weeds; ties askew, rusted rails run helter-skelter. Pigeons fly in and out of unglazed windows and the wind coaxes an impatient whistle from a ghost locomotive. Daubed with shreds of old paint, wood is whittled and roughened by age; sinews of wind-twisted metal hold tenuously. Painted messages exhort across a century, their voices only slightly hoarsened by time. - Ranga Parthasarathy
