The Post: There's a new gallery in town

Gallery Description: 
Over the past six months, Events Wood Buffalo has been in the development stage of a new initiative called the Post. The Post is a public art gallery housed within the curved lower foyer of the Keyano Theatre and Arts Centre. The name for this new gallery alludes the gallery’s goal of becoming a sustainable presence in this community, a presence that helps to foster appreciation and support for the arts.

We hope to operate within the below hours of operations, however we are dependant on volunteers, so please if you are interested in being involved contact the curator via the email below. 

Proposed Hours of Operation as of Feb 18th 2012
Tuesday – Friday 5 – 9pm
Saturdays 10am – 5pm

The development of this gallery has been a collaborative effort and we are always looking for new people to join the Post team. In conjunction with an advisory group Events Wood Buffalo has been working to develop an administrative process and governing documents for the gallery. We are also currently exploring funding opportunities for staffing and programming.

We are still looking for two members for our volunteer advisory group as well as volunteers who are interested in assisting with sitting the gallery so that we may coordinate a regular schedule of hours of operations. Volunteers of the Post will receive gallery training and enjoy various professional development opportunities. If you are interested in volunteering don't miss out on the upcoming training sessions within the first two weeks of February.  

For any questions about the Post or to find out more about getting involved with its development please email the curator at:


  1. So where does one apply for this at ? Keyano or Events Wood Buffalo?I certainly would be interested in being on your advisory panel. So happy to see that space being put to use. I am a local artist and educator and also perhaps could offer some assistance in the gallery.
