The Art Gallery of Grand Prairie put together an exhibition of his work
that was shown in January, 2015.
A Sublime Vernacular: The Landscape Paintings of Levine Flexhaug
offered the first overview of the extraordinary career
of Levine Flexhaug (1918 -1974), an itinerant painter
who sold thousands of variations of essentially the same landscape painting,
in national parks, resorts, department stores, restaurants and bars
across western Canada from the late 1930s through the early 1960s.
Born in Climax, Saskatchewan in 1918, Flexhaug,
worked in the prairie provinces and in British Columbia, where he died in 1974.
The exhibition featured some 460 paintings and toured nationally
following its presentation in Grande Prairie.
