Owners Philip (pictured) and Mark Muz hope to open The Aviary this spring at 9314 111 Ave. The Aviary is an all-ages arts venue and café with space for about 100 people. You can help by buying Aviary Victory Bonds for $20 or attending their fundraiser concert at Studio96 on March 5. Details at facebook.com/arteryyeg/. Look for a full article on The Aviary soon.
The Nina (n-eye-na) is an art-making centre for adults with developmental disabilities. If you have ever walked by and looked through our windows during the week, you likely saw a room full of people drawing and painting. If you came through the doors to visit, you probably saw our textile, ceramics, and printing studios bursting with activity. Over 170 people belong to the Nina’s collective of artists.
At the Nina, we love being part of Alberta Avenue’s thriving art scene and we offer free drop-in Community Art Nights on Tuesdays and Family Art Nights on Wednesdays for anyone wanting to create art. In the Stollery Gallery, we host 15 or more exhibits a year from other groups and individuals as well as Nina artists.
Now there’s a new project that’s all about community, and we’d like to invite you to join us.
Some months ago, I believe you ran a story about a local female plumber. Would you be able let me know who that was and/or the name of her plumbing company? Thank you.
Keep up the good work, by the way. We pick up a copy of your paper every edition and yes, we try to give business to advertisers in your paper when we can. Hope the Rat Creek Press remains running for many years to come.
