Scott and Federico were born in opposite corners of the world, but developed a similar passion: photographing abandoned rural buildings and vehicles and turning them into authentic works of art. Their explorations take them deep into rural Manitoba's less-travelled roads, looking for derelict houses, tractors, cars and mementos of the country life that once was. The emotional connection with their subjects is immediately apparent when viewing their dramatic images of the aging, the forsaken, and the decaying.

I have invited 50 artists to enter this art show with a work of art that is unexpected. I have asked them to submit a story as well. Everything on the walls will be replaced with new paintings, printmaking, drawings, photographs, mixed media, and also several three dimensional works by 50 different artists.
