An inspiring exhibit of diverse works by Red Deer College visual arts students opens today at the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery.

The display represents the best pieces created by talented young art students over the past year. A broad spectrum of subject matter, materials and forms are covered. “It’s truly an inspiring collection of talent and ability,” said RDC curator Robin Lambert.

Jason Frizzell, department chair of RDC’s visual arts program, said every first- and second-year student was invited to submit at least one piece for the juried show.

Three instructors, a community member, and a first-year student then selected the best of the submitted artworks for the exhibit that runs to April 15.

A meet-the-artists reception for the annual year-end show will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday. For more information, call 403-309-8446.

Anyone’s unused Aeroplan points can be donated to the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra until the end of this month.

RDSO supporters can choose to donate some or all of their Aeroplan Miles to the orchestra until March 31. This can help with the cost of bringing in guest artists who will be featured during the 2012-13 season.

The RDSO performs six concerts a year, as well as three chamber events.

The orchestra reaches up to 10,000 Central Albertans each season with their various education and outreach programs, including Choir Kids, the educational rehearsal program, Symphonic Show ’n’ Tell, and the woodwind quintet program.

For more information about the Aeroplan Charitable Pooling Program, call 403-340-2948 or go to reddeersymphony@telus.net for an official pledge form.
