Take the Leap Art Show
This year's student/teacher art show supporting a charity is called Take the Leap, in honour of this leap year. Artwork will be on display at St. Albert Centre Mall from February 20-March 2. The opening of the display will take place on Thursday, February 20 from 5-7 pm.
Origin of Leap Year: Julius Caesar consulted with the top astronomers of the day, and in 46 B.C. decided to add one day (known as leap day) every four years to create balance between the lunar and solar calendars. This day is February 29, and occurs every 4 years. This art show attempts to address the issue of balance by exploring artists' responses to this theme.
Artwork may be purchased for $150 each, with all proceeds going to support the Mustard Seed Street Church and their art programming. For more information, please contact Colleen Hewitt at 780.459.4405.
