Tyler Brett: Every Public Building & Some People in Bruno SK circa 2011

Every Public Building & Some People in Bruno SK circa 2011

Every Public Building & Some People in Bruno SK circa 2011 is a series of matter-of-fact line-drawing representations of everyday life in the town of Bruno, suitable for colouring by adults or children or for quiet enjoyment.

Bruno Saskatchewan is a town of roughly six hundred people located about one hour east of Saskatoon. In addition to all of the public service and amenity buildings, the drawings in this book document every one of the town of Bruno’s shops (all of which were locally owned and operated) as they existed in 2011. Some of the drawings are also of, or include, shopkeepers, or members of the community who were associated with the buildings depicted. Tyler Brett lived on Main St. and worked in and around Bruno for seven years as a carpenter assistant and occasionally as one of the local shopkeepers. Since leaving Bruno in 2013, many of these buildings and businesses have changed ownership, and some of the people drawn have since passed away. This book is a tribute to all of them. Brett now lives in Sointula BC on Malcolm Island where he works as a paramedic and runs The Sointula Art Shed Artist Residency with Kerri Reid, their son Teddy, cat Marvin and six chickens.
