Primary Colours, a City of Calgary art program, has supported young artists in Calgary for 24 years helping at least 3,700 youth form the ages of three to 17 receive artistic guidance, support and a place to show and grow their talent.
This May 5 is opening night for the 24th annual exhibition of Primary Colours Children’s Art. This exhibition features works of art from The City of Calgary’s North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre and Wildflower Arts Centre.
Various works will be on display during the exhibit, taking place through May 18, at the Triangle Gallery of Visual Arts, adjacent to the Municipal Building. The exhibition features several mediums including sculpture, drawing, painting, cartooning, printmaking and T-shirt design.
The City of Calgary’s two arts facilities have become popular with Calgarians trying and training their artistic talents, in both object and performance based pieces.
North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre, in its school house location on 523 27 Ave. N.W., has been a City- run arts facility for 26 years. Wildflower Arts Centre, in the Spruce Cliff neighbourhood at 3363 Spruce Dr. S.W., has been offering visual and performing arts programs for 33 years. Both drawprofessional arts instructors from the local arts community.
Calgarians are invited to meet the young artists, see their works and enjoy some light refreshments on Thursday May 5, from 5:30 p.m. at the Triangle Art Gallery, 800 MacLeod Trail S.E.
