People and Places Along the Way to be on display at MacDonald Island


(Fort McMurray, AB, March 1, 2013) – MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation will hold the official opening for People and Places Along the Way on Thursday, March 7 at 7:00 p.m.

People and Places Along the Way is a duo exhibition developed by local artists Liana Wheeldon and Megan Storrar and explores the representation of human beings in different contexts via paintings, drawings and prints. Both Wheeldon and Storrar capture stories through travels, books, fantasies and everyday life, while themes include humour, passion, happiness and sadness.

“Nothing is more magical than having the imagination captured so strongly that one feels like the characters are people we know,” said Wheeldon. “These stories are not just a means of telling, but also an attempt to understand human experiences and events that change us as well as places and objects that tell a story.”

Wheeldon and Storrar will be joined at the exhibition opening by Christine Burton, Deputy Mayor and Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Councillor. Light refreshments and complimentary appetizer-style offerings will be served.

People and Places Along the Way is on display from March 4-31.
