Local artist Elsie Archer was commissioned to paint an iconic scene of Olds that could be used by the Town as gifts to visiting dignitaries. Archer combined four historic buildings in a vignette showing the town’s historic residences. She also included renderings of famous town leaders in the painting. Elsie Archer and Michelle Jorgenson, Heritage Advisor for the Town of Olds, unveiled the artwork at the September 21 P&P Committee meeting in the Town Council Chambers. In addition to the original painting, a smaller print from a limited edition run was also on display.
