Arts and Entertainment
The arts are an important part of life here. The Station Arts Centre at Rosthern stages plays with a rural theme. The Allen Sapp Gallery in North Battleford displays the work of the famous Cree artist for whom it is named. The town of St. Walburg was once home to the most prolific religious painter the west has ever seen, Count Berthold von Imhoff. See his work in the former Roman Catholic Church, which now houses the town’s museum, or tour his original studio located just south of St. Walburg.
In Duck Lake, you’ll find the work of well-known Canadian artist, Glen Scrimshaw, at his self-titled gallery. Duck Lake, itself, is gallery-like with its enormous, colourful murals covering buildings throughout town. If you’re looking for action, you’ll find it in West Central. Events range from fishing derbies and country fairs, to sports days and chuckwagon chariot races. Don’t forget to visit the Gold Eagle Casino in North Battleford – you never know when luck will be on your side!
