You can be the artist at the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery on Friday. All the walls will be covered in paper and visitors will be invited to take a pen or pencil to them to the sounds of inspirational music by a local DJ. There will be a 5-8 p.m. reception.

Gratitude, a Lettering Arts Guild of Red Deer exhibit, is on to May 29 in the Corridor Gallery, downstairs at the Recreation Centre. A reception for the mixed-media show will be held 5-7 p.m. Friday.
