Night of Artists: It’s the 25th anniversary of the Sculptors’ Association of Alberta’s annual sale, all weekend at St. Albert’s Enjoy Centre. Sculptors include Ellie Shuster, Kay McCormack, Carroll Charest, Sally Fairhead, Shawn Olander, Jennifer Lang and many more (18 in all). “The sculptors enjoy talking about sculpture with visitors and other artists,” notes Shuster. “Sculpture is not a common art form and often not well understood. It is not widely represented at art walks, as it is difficult to transport, set up and tear down each day. The opportunity to take the time we need to set up a compelling exhibit — and the ability to show and sell our work over a multi-day event — makes NOA special for us.”
Details: 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm Fri; 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Sat.; 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Sun. at Enjoy Center (101 Riel Dr., St. Albert), entry by donation

While most bands with this grit and volume are about sex, drugs and rock and roll, with The Congregation, Bellamy laughs, “It’s more peace, love, understanding… and rock and roll. Everything everybody needs comes out of love, even if people think they don’t need or deserve it.” Get ready to thrash.
