We would like to thank our funders for making The Story of Sagebrush Studios possible:

Community Futures Southwest, Cypress Hills Destination Area, Grasslands National Park, Stark & Marsh Chartered Accountants, Swift Current Museum, Tourism Swift Current and Tourism Saskatchewan.

Be inspired by the human spirit and what can be accomplished when passion and desire intersect. For 30 years Dean and Fran Francis have lived by this creed as they have created Sagebrush Studios, an inspirational paradise that combines art, nature and the rural lifestyle in this must-see attraction.

Words nor images can do it justice, It’s how you feel that tells you how special the place is. Calm, grateful, in awe are all words to use to describe Sagebrush Studios but they still don’t come close to communicate the feelings you experience when you’re there.

The birds singing joyfully, the sweet smell of the evening air, the glorious churches standing tall all work together to give you even more of an appreciation of Dean’s artwork. His work reminds us that beauty is all around us if we’re open to it.

Produced by Overtime Studios in Swift Current, Stories of the Great Southwest is an ongoing documentary series that highlights the people and places of Southwest Saskatchewan.

Although there has never been a time when so much content has been created, the local stories are told less and less by traditional TV broadcasters. Our stories here in the Southwest are important because they remind us of who we are. Hopefully, we can all see a little part of ourselves in them.
