“He leaves behind an illustrated life” – Host Kevin Power is joined by Barbara Stehwien to talk about the legacy of Fritz Stehwien. Fritz (Barbara’s father) was a German-Canadian artist who painted and sketched an estimated 10,000 works in his lifetime. Since his passing in 2008, at the age of nearly 94, it has become a labour of love for Barbara to preserve these pieces, some of which have suffered deterioration over the years.
German Culture Alive is a SaskScapes feature series sponsored by the Saskatchewan German Council telling stories of culture, heritage, immigration, arts, and more, of German-Canadians in Saskatchewan. The series is produced and hosted by Kevin Power.
