(June 12, 2015 Update: Just heard from Bluerock Gallery that all these framed art pieces have been purchased by the production company! I guess they didn’t want to send them back! *grin*)
The production company has been using Alberta art for the set designs in Fargo since filming their first television season near Calgary in early 2014. Calgary doubled for Minnesota and North Dakota in the first season of Fargo and will play the part of South Dakota in the second season.
The designers were looking for authentic rural art, and they found it in spades at Bluerock Gallery, nestled in the foothills in Black Diamond, Alberta. If you’ve never been there, it is definitely worth a visit. Check out this blog I wrote about them a few years ago.
Although other artists’ art will also be part of the Fargo production, here are the four handmade pieces of mine that the Fargo production team chose. I’ll be watching the second season closely to see if I can spot them!
All these prints are part of a limited edition series, and some in the edition are still available. Visit my website lindacote.ca for a look at all my handmade linocut prints and cards, or click on the photos in this blog to go right to my online store.
