The Donalda Gallery of the Arts has a new exhibit of local artists who have taken and repurposed material.

The Donalda Gallery of the Arts has a new exhibit of local artists who have taken and repurposed material.

Dan Knudtson has taken old wood from a building and built cabinets. Imagine having a cabinet built with wood 100 years old.

Lane Damberger uses his welding scraps to build “dinosaurs” for another unique piece of art.

Gerald Heisz has brought in reproductions of old machinery. Those are built from bits and pieces of tin and hardwood flooring.

Wayne Helmig has a talent of carving scenes out of elk and moose antlers.

All of those artists are very talented and put many hours into their art. The exhibit opened May 17, with a “Wine & Cheese Gala” set for this Friday at the gallery from 7 to 9 p.m.

On Saturday, the Donalda and District Museum Society will hold its seventh annual Garage Sale and Pancake Breakfast at the Donalda Community Hall. The doors open at 9 a.m. Come out and seek treasures and fill your tummy.

If you want be a part of the Donalda School 100th anniversary as a volunteer for June 29 and 30, please contact Don Seale at 403-883-2280 for more information.

Birthday greetings go out to Ashton Reyes, Easton Walstrom, Don Todd, Elaine Helfer, Felicity Affleck, Gail Halseth, Kevin Crumly, John Paul Wasyliw, Mennie Sta Cruz, Trent Sehlstrom, Tyler Dietrich, Candace Rider, Mercedez Rasmussen, KC Bugayong, Garry Blouin, Turner Volker and anyone else celebrating a birthday this week.

Happy Birthday!
