The Wood Buffalo Artist in Residency (AIR) program is a mentorship opportunity for emerging artists to build on their artistic practices, as well as their professional portfolios.

Local artists were invited to apply for the AIR program this spring. The successful artists took part in the mentorship program for 10 weeks over the summer. Throughout the program, participants lead community art workshops throughout the region. The artists in residence will showcase their artwork in a final group exhibition on Aug. 24.

Final Exhibition

Inspired by Mnemosyne, the Greek Goddess of storytelling and memory, this year’s artists in residence tell their own stories through a variety of mediums including poetry, textiles, print and paintings.

Celebrate the creative talents of the Artist in Residency participants at the Mnemosyne Opening Reception.

When: August 24 at 7 p.m.
Where: MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by the Kirschner Family Corporation

A selection of appetizers and a cash bar will be available. The exhibition will remain on display until October 1.
