Most of the major cities have several performing theatre companies who entertain in venues as diverse as the Arts Barns and the Francis Winspear Centre. Both Edmonton and Calgary have quality symphony orchestras. Many performing venues exist throughout the province, notably Calgary's Jack Singer Concert Hall and Edmonton's Francis Winspear Centre. The Northern Lights Theatre located at Keyano College in Fort McMurray is known throughout western Canada for its quality performances and curriculum. Several well-known theatre artists got their start in an Alberta theatre. Although Alberta lacks a preponderance of notable large art galleries, many small galleries which focus on local artists and artisans exist in the major centres. Canadian and northern Canadian art and crafts are notable in their popularity. Local sculptors, painters, weavers and many other artisans show original works throughout the province. (en)
