Artist Talks on Wednesdays at 6 in the Athabasca Room outside of the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery (second floor), within the the Suncor Leisure Centre on MacDonald Island Park. First one is Bree Mackin on July 17th.
They also have open studios every Monday from 4 - 7pm in the Keyano Theatre and Arts Centre. You can go and watch them work and ask questions.
