2013 Artist in Residency group exhibit ‘Socius’ opens on Thursday

The Artist in Residency 2013 Program (AIR) invites residents to attend the grand opening of their group exhibition Socius on Thursday, August 29, 7:00 p.m., at the MacDonaldIslandCommunityArtGallery. This exhibit marks the end of the 2013 program and will be open to the public until October 1, 2013.

Socius showcases the talents of seven artists from across Canada who have been working in studios located in Fort McMurray and Anzac throughout the summer.

AIR participants Bree Mackin, Sonia Burke-Smith, Luke Maddaford, and Christian Villacillo have worked in the Fort McMurray studio since June 5; while Breanna Fabbro, Nicola Tibbetts and Donna Bilyk have worked in Anzac since July 31. Residents have had the opportunity throughout the summer to visit the two studios, located at Keyano Theatre and Arts Centre in Fort McMurray and Anzac’s Community Hall, to learn more about the artists’ work and their talents.
