Adrian Paton Photo Collection
Travelling Exhibit
February 8 - April 9, 2018

Adrian Paton

Exhibit from Saskatchewan History & Folklore Society (SHFS)

It’s been a labour of love for Arcola resident Adrian Paton. After collecting nearly 8000 photos over a period of more than 20 years, his work is featured in a travelling exhibit.

The display, developed through a partnership with the Saskatchewan History & Folklore Society (SHFS) and the University of Saskatchewan, features selected photos from the collection along with information designed to inspire people to reflect on the past.

The Saskatchewan History & Folklore Society (SHFS) is a non-profit organization that has been helping the people of Saskatchewan to recognize, share, celebrate, and document their living history and folklore since 1957. SHFS is supported by the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust System through SaskCulture.



A Story of Canadian Innovation
Travelling Exhibit
April 24 - July 8, 2018


It does not get any more Canadian than Canola! Canada / ola (oil low acid).

How does a plant breeding innovation become, in just a few decades, the most profitable commodity for Canadian farmers? Part of its success is due to its versatility – this crop is used as a healthy culinary oil, a protein source for animals, to power cars and much more. Today, the canola industry contributes billions of dollars to the Canadian economy!

Produced by the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum to mark the 50th anniversary of this ‘Made in Canada’ crop, Canola explores the science behind the development, cultivation and future of this crop, as well as its uses in industries from food processing to transportation. Discover Canola through your five senses and immerse yourself within the environments of the two bright yellow pod-shaped structures - a canola field, and a processing plant.
