'About Sports' set to open at MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery
(Fort McMurray, AB, January 28, 2012) – The community is invited to the official opening of About Sports at the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m.
The exhibition includes photography and paintings and is the work of local artists, who were invited to create representations of the spirit, movement and passion for sports.
“We feel this is a very fitting exhibition on display in lockstep with the 2013 M&M Meat Shops Canadian Junior Curling Championships co-hosted by the Fort McMurray Oilsands Curling Club and MacDonald Island,” said Jodie Mercier, General Manager of Sport and Recreation at MacDonald Island Park. “Historical images from the Oilsands Curling Club are incorporated into About Sports, underscoring the importance of this key community organization to our heritage.”
Complimentary appetizer-style offerings and beverages will be served at the exhibition opening. About Sports runs through February 27.
