Arts & Culture Program

One of the key components of the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo is a dedication to presenting arts and culture options to the communities of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Through arts and culture programs the RRC strives to bring new experiences to arts and culture enthusiasts of all ages, including youth. Art exhibitions hosted at the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre and arts and culture programs offered at the facilities of the RRC bring arts and culture to the residents of the region and gives them the opportunity to explore arts and culture from the region and around the world.

Mi Art Gallery

MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation is a no-fee community art gallery that provides visual artists with an exhibit space equipped with a professional hanging and lighting system.

The guiding principle of the gallery is promotion of local and regional artists, as well as developing an appreciation for visual art within our community. We offer art lessons for children, youth, adults and seniors. We also organize school programs and Community Art Projects.

The MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation is located on the second floor of the Suncor Community Leisure Centre at MacDonald Island Park.

Call to Local Artists

The AFA Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX), organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta, asks artists currently living in the Wood Buffalo Region to consider this region of the province and what they would like to share with other Albertans concerning this area and invites submissions for consideration for this TREX exhibition. The exhibition Beyond the “Patch”, consisting of approximately 20 art works, will travel Alberta from September 2017 to August 2019.
