The Shed @ Medalta

A Creative Placemaking Exhibition for gathering our community around art, music, & the collection @Medalta.

January 26th – April 2nd, 2017.

In the Yuill Gallery @ Medalta

713 – Medalta Ave SE, Medicine Hat, AB. Canada

 

Our Placemaking exhibitions are all about creating a special space in our gallery centered around gathering our community during those long winter nights around art, music, & the collection @Medalta.

In the past few years we’ve recreated a 60’s rec room with ping-pong, great conversations about our collection of giant ceramic ashtrays full of popeye cigarettes, and vinyl listening nights in the Rumpus Room @ Medalta.  Last years exhibition was a 50’s Kitchen Party with vintage Hycroft, the glaze kitchen bar, and jam sessions featuring local musicians.

This year’s theme is the Shed .. shhhh… its a secret whiskey bar @ Medalta. Featuring our collection of old whiskey jugs with a twist…don’t miss our line up of events including the Shed socials, folk club concerts and more.  There’s a reason these exhibitions are a community & staff favorite.

We’re kicking things off with a free concert with Derek Hintz Thursday January 26th, from 6-8pm, followed by the Tongue on the Post winter folk music festival January 27th and 28th.
