65 Years Young! Celebrating Leduc #1 Energy Center With a Mural Unveiling!

In 1947, Alberta's history was changed forever by th
Leduc#1e discovery of oil. 


The site of that particular blow out had been contaminated by the oil and has been reclaimed by building the Leduc # 1 Energy Center, where people from all over can come and learn about it and Alberta's history in oil & Gas.

This weekend is the 65th Anniversary Extravaganza on August 18th and 19th with interesting exhibits and fun for the whole family!Leduc#1






Various dignitaries from Provincial Ministers to Mayors of surrounding cities came to speak about how great our province is and the impact oil has had on our Provincial economy.

My friends and mentors Kathie Henderson and Jack Ellis have been working on murals depicting the history of Alberta's oil and unveiled the first 2 of 7 canvasses!

Here is the area where the murals will live. Original Art & Prints by both artists are on display for sale.

Both Kathie and Jack took turns explaining the canvas and what it was depicting from the 'Big Bang' up to the '30's where people would drive up to the derricks and get oil for their cars in cans...

A very fascinating place to visit and learn. Funding is needed to continue the mural on for 5 more canvasses depicting the rest of Alberta's oil history from the '30's on and into the future!

Stop by and seeLeduc#1 Jack and Kathie who will be painting as well this weekend for your viewing pleasure!

Peggy Sue - Sounds like you are surrounded by very talented friends.  Like attracts like, of course.  Love the nod to Alberta's oil & gas history.

Peg-That place sounds really interesting and I am not even a big history person. From what I can see of the murals they are gorgeous.

Peg, Edmonton isn't exactly around the corner for me so I'll have to rely on your posts with additional photos of Kathie & Jack's work.

You're welcome Adrian! Oil is a part of why Alberta is a 'have' province. We have so many natural resources here, plus ways to use sustainable energy if the powers that be ever got on that band wagon...

Thanx Sal Gal! Jack and Kathie are very talented! I hope this viewing of the mural gets them some more funding for the next 5!

The murals are gorgeous Sharon! I didn't want to take really good pix, I wanted people to go see them in person. But I guess that's not too easy for my AR friends... =D

Nick! There will be many more posts on Jack and Kathie as they are going to have me teaching my painting method at their school next year and I am at their studio at least once a week...

Peg, I think we should have a party --- and now we have a reason!    Woot Woot, and oil in the ground or on a painting!
