Inspiration

The inspiration for Topgate Farm and topgatefarm.com is the result of one man’s passion for trains, the mountains, the prairies and his need to paint.   Focusing on the imagery of Western Canada, topgatefarm.com offers a view of our world through the eyes of select Canadian artists.  Our goals are to offer an online gallery for Canadian artists to showcase their work and to produce quality, hand printed reproductions in the form of Art Cards, Note Cards, Art Prints and gifts.  As we build on the launch of topgatefarm.com we will be inviting more artists to display their works in The Gallery.
 
The current spotlight is on the works of J. J. Godlonton and his paintings and photographic images of Western Canadian Railroads, Trains of the CPR and CNR, Prairie, Foothills and Mountain Landscapes of Western Canada, and Coastal Scenes around Victoria, British Columbia.
 
Visit our Gallery and meet the Artist.  Read about the farm and imagine its history; the story will unfold gradually.  And don’t forget to stop by the shop.  We hope you enjoy your visit.
 
Let us know what you think!
