About the Artist
Terri Fidelak was raised in Fairlight, Saskatchewan, where she spent her childhood rumbling around in grain trucks and deciphering the whispers of northern lights. After completing a BA in English Literature and a BFA in printmaking at the University of Regina, she moved to Quebec and then to Japan. There she became a contributor to the local art scene and travelled abundantly until she eventually came home to the prairies. Fidelak now lives and works in Regina.
Fidelak’s drawings and sculptural installations are a celebration of prairie, an exploration of origins, and a search for wonder. She is shaped by the landscape of her birth and strives to honour human kinship to the earth through narrative. We tell tales as offerings of self-definition and totems of belonging. Fidelak is intrigued by the details of personal and collective fictions; by the mythical, the mundane, the sacred, and the strange within our stories. In exploring these facets of human relationship to one another and to the land, Fidelak unearths wonder in ordinary moments and articulates the connectivity of all things.

Congrats Terri !! Can’t wait to hear of your adventures around the province. Will be keeping an eye out for your stones. Really cool idea!
Thanks, guys! I hope you do find one!
Terri just showed mom the web site, and she is telling me all about who you are as she remembers your mom, says she thinks your mom was a Cairns? Mom was a Sauter and grew up in Fairlight, she filled me in on some history will bring her the the ledge when Our rock makes its rounds mike
Yes, that’s right, my mom was a Cairns. Great, perhaps I will meet you when you come to the Legislative building!
Terri, we found a stone in The Great Sandhills. When did you leave it there and how buried was it? We have a picture of it as we found it, do you have a picture of it when you placed it?
Hi! Yes, I did photograph the stone when I left it. It was buried fairly deeply and I’m surprised it’s already been found! Please email the picture to me at email@example.com. I will post the pictures I took on the blog. And congratulations!
We would really like to know how many days it was out there!
Oh, I hid the stone on October 24th. I guess the wind uncovered it quickly!
