Western, aboriginal, floral, landscape art and portraiture will be presented from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday on the main floor of Executive Place, at the corner of 49th Avenue and Ross Street.

Everyone is invited to see this progressive showcase for 11 participating talented local artists, and to attend a reception Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.

Art from the Streets is a donation-funded co-operative art studio and gallery located in the heart of Red Deer’s downtown. It aims to provide street-involved people with a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment in which to create, display and sell their artworks.

Art supplies and display space is provided for free and all the proceeds go to the artists.
