Mi Art Gallery
MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation is a no-fee community art gallery that provides visual artists with an exhibit space equipped with a professional hanging and lighting system.
The guiding principle of the gallery is promotion of local and regional artists, as well as developing an appreciation for visual art within our community. We offer art lessons for children, youth, adults and seniors. We also organize school programs and Community Art Projects.
The MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation is located on the second floor of the Suncor Community Leisure Centre at MacDonald Island Park.
Community Art Projects
The gallery is actively involved with community art project initiatives. In 2011 the Wood Buffalo Artists Forum organized an event called “Art Experience”. Participants were invited to create their own piece, with the end result a collective community art work exhibited at the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery.
Art at MacDonald Island
Our art classes and programs allow budding artists of all ages to learn and explore different art techniques such as charcoals, pastels and acrylics. We invite you to explore your talents at the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery!
Alberta Cultural Days
Alberta Arts Days is an annual province-wide celebration of our culture, heritage, artistic diversity and provincial pride. The Cultural day movement represents the largest-ever collective public participation campaign undertaken by the arts and cultural community in Canada. The MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery is part of this annual celebration of the arts in our province.
