Wood Buffalo Arts and Crafts Guild: Vigilance
January 5 – February 18, 2022
As we welcome the new year the Kirschner Family Community Art Gallery at MacDonald Island Park is pleased to host Vigilance, an exhibition featuring members of the Wood Buffalo Arts and Crafts Guild.
Vigilance was created in tribute to well-known Wood Buffalo resident Carrolle Vigilance. Carrolle, who was passionate about volunteerism in our community, passed away in March, 2018, after a short battle with cancer. The exhibit showcases art work from members of the Wood Buffalo Arts and Crafts Guild.
Vigilance will open for public viewing on January 5, 2022, at the Kirschner Family Community Art Gallery at MacDonald Island Park. The exhibition will be available for viewing until February 18, 2022.
