First exhibit of 2014 at MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery opens January 23
(Fort McMurray, AB, January 17, 2014) – The first exhibit of the 2014 season at the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation is titled ‘Here and There’ and comprises works from artists Shauna Kelly and Kritsana Naowakhun.
The exhibit explores landscape art and the artists’ relationship with land, water, and city. One artist focuses on the connection of landscapes made through memories and nostalgia while the other examines the links between nature and human structures.
“It is a pleasure to open the New Year with an exhibit of this calibre,” said Tim Reid, Chief Executive Officer of the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo. “This duo exhibit allows the visitor to enjoy the exploration of landscape art through the works of two different artists.”
The opening reception for ‘Here and There’ is at 7:00 pm on Thursday January 23 at the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation. The exhibition will be available for public viewing until March 1.
