Remember When? Suzan Heriot Sturgeon was a gifted central Alberta artist who devoted much of her life to the creation of countless bronze sculptures. Inspired and influenced by the everyday cowboy’s lifestyles, horses, and cattle, her traditional and popular work was shown and sold throughout western Canada and the United States for many years. Suzan also shared her skills and knowledge with the completion of commissions for various cattle and horse associations, as well as willingly assisting with our local Canadian Rodeo Hall of Fame and the promotion of the annual Ponoka Stampede Art and Gift Show. Two of her magnificent bronzes shown here were called ‘Yesterday’s Heroes’ and ‘Hidden Heroes.’ Photo submitted
