The Community pARTners Gallery is a partnership between the Yorkton Public Library, the City of Yorkton and the Yorkton Arts Council.
As a child the outdoors was Dawson’s playground. She loved climbing trees, collecting sticks and stones, and using her imagination. She would draw almost everyday. She loved the beauty of nature and was in awe of its mystery.
As she grew older and had a family, she had more pressing matters and creating art was put on the back burner. When she graduated with a teaching degree in 1993, she found herself learning about art, began experimenting and teaching art and drama to students of all ages.
This whole experience brought her back to the art world. She began exploring with different mediums. In the last ten years she has dabbled in pastel, watercolor, and acrylic paint.
Her message to anyone, no matter what age, is that it's never to late to learn something new and find your passion. Art helps her connect to her inner child and find joy.

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.
