Art About Art exhibition opens December 6 at MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery
The MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation is pleased to welcome the final exhibition of 2015, Art About Art, to the Suncor Community Leisure Centre in December.
The Art About Art exhibition showcases artwork created by local students who participated in the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) School Visits Program in 2015. Students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 learned about RRC's public art projects, The Miquwahkesis and The Seven Teachings, and then created art inspired by the public art projects to share in this community exhibition.
“It is a genuine pleasure to showcase the efforts of the talented children and youth of our community in this exhibition,” said Annette Antoniak, Chief Executive Officer of the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo. “We are very excited to share our public art projects with the community and we hope the School Visits program has given local students the opportunity to learn more about public art in our region.”
The opening reception for the Art About Art exhibition takes place at Noon on December 6 at the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation. Light refreshments will be served and all community members are invited to attend.
