Art that’s, by turns, free-spirited, insightful, colourful and modern is being shown around Red Deer during the First Friday gallery openings for June.

Diverse artworks from talented young artists are featured in the Hang-ups and Insights display at the Kiwanis Gallery in the Red Deer Public Library, which is operated by the Red Deer Arts Council.

This is the sixth annual exhibit from advanced placement and international baccalaureate students at Hunting Hills and Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High Schools.

The show of paintings, drawings and sculptures runs through June 21. But a First Friday reception will be held on Friday, June 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. Students and instructors will be attending, and everyone is welcome to help celebrate the creativity of these young artists.

Michael Huyzer will be showcasing his artworks and hand-painted tins in the Free Spirit exhibit at The Hub Gallery at 4936 Ross St. Proceeds from the sales of a special selection of his art will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

An opening reception will be held on Friday from 4 to 6:30 p.m.

The Viewpoint Gallery in the City of Red Deer’s Culture Services Centre, 3827-39th St. is featuring a group exhibit of new works by Viewpoint artists, including photographer Arto Djerdjerian, painter and potter Dawn Candy and ceramic sculpture-ist Sally Smith.
