Following a storage problem at the Station House Gallery & Gift Shop,  led Diane and then board members to an artistic and historical solution.  The gallery uses a lot of wooden shelving units, tables, and plinths that needed a home on the ground floor. The building at #1 McKenzie Ave. N. is an historical building that can’t have major alterations so after a lot of discussion a storage unit was purchased.  Diane described her vision to Brandy Stecyk, one of the board members, who created a mock up, and the project to beautify the storage container was launched.  Diane, with support from the board, carefully chose people with connections to the building itself and to the arts community in the Cariboo to be depicted in the mural. The mural depicts Libby Abbot, a resident of the Station House in its early days, holding a bucket used for whitewashing the building – her mother’s job. Libby went on to work in the Station House Gallery’s gift shop. Vivien Cowen, the woman with the sketch pad, along with her daughters Sania Cornwall and Dru Hodgson were some of the movers and shakers behind the beginnings of the Cariboo Art Society and the Station House Gallery.
The seated man is George Keener, a well-known member of the community and long time director with the Cariboo Friendship Society. He was also involved with the Williams Lake stockyards for more than fifty years.
Standing on the left is Vivienne Dandridge Lanford, who came by train to teach at the Chimney Valley School in the late 1940’s. She was part of the Canadian Women’s Army Corps and is shown in her uniform. She was a member and supporter of the gallery.
The mural was brought to life thanks to the planning, design, and artistic talents of Brandy Stecyk and Dwayne Davis, in the fall of 2021.
