MacDonald Island Park Community Art Gallery invites public to opening of “Wood Buffalo Truth” exhibition

The MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation would like to invite the community to the opening of the “Wood Buffalo Truth” exhibition.

The exhibition is a joint collaboration of Margaret Sonnenberg and Megan Storrar, and represents a year of preparation from both artists. Each piece was created for the “Wood Buffalo Truth” exhibition and represents their collective personal experiences in Wood Buffalo.

From a philosophical perspective, “Wood Buffalo Truth” is an attempt, through visual art, to counter the oft-negative perception of our region that exists – unjustifiably – in other parts of Canada. The paintings truly depict the character and beauty that makes the Wood Buffalo region unique.

The opening also marks the first anniversary of the grand opening of the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.

Additionally, Margaret and Megan will be on hand at the Gallery every Thursday in February from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for any school or youth group that would enjoy a tour of the “Wood Buffalo Truth” exhibit. Please book in advance by contacting MacDonald Island Park’s Culture Coordinator, Ana Maria Mendez-Barks

When: Thursday, January 26, 7:00 p.m.
Where: MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation, Suncor Community Leisure Centre, second floor.
