Artwork by Gallery Artists and Local Students

In addition to works by Gallery artists, January will see some engaging artwork by local students. In November gallery manager Lisa MacLean did two workshops on Modern Art with grade 4-9 students at Freedom Thinkers Education, a local independent school in Baldonnel. The students worked together very hard and enjoyed their experience of doing so with a different perspective and appreciation. On January 18, School District #60 gifted students will be building their versions of the very humorous Rube Goldberg Machines in the gallery and adjoining Multipurpose Room. These devices are named after the Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Rube Goldberg who depicted wacky, convoluted inventions to perform simple and mundane tasks in his cartoons.

A fictitious male stripper troupe (played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians) performs a sexylarious improv comedy show. These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their hilarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance”. These guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh at them.
