It Takes a Village
Profile by Jane Ledwell

The area once known as “Clifton Corner” once was a “bustling village” with a two-storey general store where you could buy everything from beans to furniture. The village continued to bustle as, years later, the original Presbyterian manse became a new general store run by Kitty Cotton, who was also postmistress. “The store was where people would gather on

On the Road of Song
Profile by Jane Ledwell

In 1980, when an adventurous, just-out-of-school Teresa Doyle played the Winnipeg Folk Festival, less than a handful of folk musicians were touring out of the East Coast.

The Art of the Organic
Profile by Jane Ledwell

The first time Ron Arvidson saw a potter transforming an unformed lump of clay, the young art student knew it was a “magical” art he wanted to master.

The Fine Print
Profile by Jane Ledwell

"Photography is a vast subject," says Lionel Stevenson. "There is no discipline, from medicine to astronomy, that doesn't use photography. But fine art photography is not concerned about the things that are recorded so much as the expression."
