The Community pARTners Gallery is a partnership between the Yorkton Public Library, the City of Yorkton and the Yorkton Arts Council.
Local artist Grace Warren is currently based in Medicine Hat, Alberta, where she is studying Art and Design at the Medicine Hat College.
Working in acrylic paint, spray paint and ceramics, she is exploring visually representing music and feelings. Her abstract style leans toward the psychedelic. She gains inspiration from music and life experience.
Creating many of these pieces during the pandemic gave her a way to make a fun and bright atmosphere during difficult times.
Sandra MacColl was a visionary and had a quiet way of making her visions come to life. In 2006 one of her visions came to life in the creation of the Community pARTners Gallery, a small public gallery space in the Yorkton Public Library.
The space is the result of a partnership of the City of Yorkton, the Yorkton Public Library and the Yorkton Arts Council.
It is a wonderful creative space that welcomes all. In her vision SandraMacColl saw beyond her own life and continues in her support of the arts even after passing away. Her generosity will ensure the continuation of the programming and maintenance of the Community pARTners Gallery for years to come.
