Call to Artists- Beacon Hill Pump House Mural Project

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is calling Canada-based artists to submit proposals for a temporary mural in Fort McMurray.

The mural, which will cover the 800 square foot exterior wall of the Beacon Hill Pump House, is part of the municipality’s Graffiti Abatement Mural Project.

“The response to previous installations has been fantastic, and we’re excited to see the proposals for this year’s project,” said Leigh Agozzino-Organ, Community Strategies Supervisor.   “We are looking for artists to share images of Wood Buffalo that represent our unique culture and community.”
Launched in 2012, the Graffiti Abatement Mural Project is a program that provides legal spaces for street art and is a proactive approach to preventing graffiti vandalism while adding public art to the community.  Previous installations include a mural painted behind Composite High School in 2012, and another mural behind Father Turcotte Elementary School in 2013.

The successful artist will also give a community workshop and lecture that will address the difference between sanctioned graffiti and vandalism.

The deadline for submissions is Monday March 31, 2014, at 4:30 p.m.

Review of Les Miserables- Spectacular Show

During Family Day weekend, I was lucky enough to attend Keyano Theatre’s rendition of Les Miserables.  I use the term lucky for two reasons; I was given a ticket for opening night to join a dear friend and the show was an experience I will never forget. 

If you've ever seen a theatrical show at Keyano Theatre, you’ve probably also felt the excitement and curiosity of the anticipated audience before the lights dim. As I sat in my seat, patiently awaiting the show, I can hear voices around me, chatting up a storm about what they think will happen and how they felt about attending opening night.  Their exhilaration was contagious because I began feeling butterflies in my stomach; I knew something great was about to happen and I didn’t want to wait any longer.  I hadn’t seen the movie nor have I ever had the opportunity to see the show on Broadway but that was fine by me. I had mentioned this to a friend of mine earlier in the week and she alluded that the show may be hard to follow.  I decided to let the show make that decision for me, that the characters could work their magic and I would be in awe of this fantastic experience. Were my expectations high?  Maybe. 

The show kicked off with a subtle yet heart felt introduction by the show’s Director, Claude Giroux, followed by music, lights dimming (yah, the moment I’ve been waiting for) and all the energy in the room focused forward to the stage. 

The curtain opens and several characters expand across the stage; prisoners who look dirty, tired and sad.  The whole show is a musical.  Every word, every sentence and every feeling is revealed in a song or to a tune.  Even the prisoner’s fatigued and weary words were brought to life in a jingle.  The main character, Jean Valjean, takes center stage and begins to tell the audience his story.  He shares his struggles, he shares his tested faith and as he opens his mouth to sing about his life, I am touched.  His voice was amazing and it sounded so beautiful.  I turn to my friend and tell her those exact words and she nods, never taking her eyes off stage.  He was one of a whole cast of exceptionally talented people, portraying the life’s of these characters. The level of talent, to me, was just mind blowing.  They sang, they laughed, they cried, they were angry as well as silly, and all the while, singing a story of heartache and loss, struggles and triumphs and of course love.  

The props were phenomenal and as the show continued, these props were graciously turned, tilted and shifted to reflect each scene, never missing a beat.  The craftsmanship and detail into the background was without a doubt brilliant.  As I sat watching, I felt as if I was in 19th century France, standing on the sidelines of such drama and turmoil.   My emotions began to flood my eyes as tears ran down my face. I laughed and cried and felt so lucky to have seen the show. 

I would like to applaud the cast, crew and volunteers of Les Miserables. They certainly did a spectacular job.  They delivered an unforgettable performance, one that soared higher than any expectation I had set.

Art Exhibit & Sale at Keyano Art Gallery

The Secret Garden Art Exhibit & Sale will be open in the Keyano Art Gallery during all performances of Les Misérables
Feb 13-15 • 12pm–11pm
Feb 18-23 • 12pm–11pm

The Artist
Jonathan Havelock is a self-taught photographer who first started exhibiting in 2009.  The unique look of his work is the result of countless hours of creative effort in the field and at his studio.  His goal is to create a two-step process in the enjoyment of each image - to have the viewer first explore the medium of the piece (i.e. oil vs. photography – flat vs. texture, etc.) – and then to appreciate the piece based on its merits as a reflection of our natural world.

The Secret Garden Theme 
The Secret Garden provides an intimate and unusual perspective of plants and flowers.  Subjects have been presented to accentuate contrast, light and depth – to attract and draw one into an imagined garden of beauty and colour.

His work can be viewed on his website at

HIStory & HERitage: Willow Lake Church in Anzac

HIStory & HERitage

While it may not look like it now, the Willow Lake Church in Anzac was once a beautiful building, bursting at the seams with a crowd of people.  For over 50 years, the Church was the centre of the community. It was where residents met to discuss projects and concerns, where young couples exchanged martial vows, where children were baptized, and where friends and family gathered to say goodbye to their dearly departed.

Looking at the dilapidated structure, it’s difficult to imagine that this little church was part of an internationally historic event: the Cold War.  

As a defensive measure during the Cold War, Canada constructed the Mid-Canada Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line in the mid-1950s. This was a line of radar stations, stretching across the country along the 55th parallel. Its purpose was to detect incoming Soviet aircraft attacks on North America.

One of these stations, and the only one of its kind in Alberta, was located at Stoney Mountain, near Anzac. It was in operation by 1957. However, due to advancements in jet aircraft,  the Mid-Canada DEW Line became obsolete shortly after it was established.  In 1964, the Stoney Mountain station was closed and its buildings were either destroyed or moved.

The Willow Lake Church (which was the Protestant church at Stoney Mountain) was moved to Anzac around 1962. Anzac was chosen because the community had recently lost their church to a fire.

 Following the relocation, the building was slightly modified. A larger entrance was added to the front and a steeple was attached to the roof. The Mennonite Mission used the building as a school from 1962 until 1966. 

The Mennonites then donated the building to the community as a non-denominational church. Over time, the church was also used as as a meeting place for groups and organizations until a larger church was built in Anzac about 10 years ago.
