Tenth Annual Fernie Banner Project Launch this April!
Spring has sprung and the banners are hung!
Spring is here and the Arts Station is excited to announce the artists chosen for the Tenth Annual Banner Launch! Taking place on Thursday, April 25 at 7pm in the The Arts Station, the big reveal certainly doesn’t strain the eye. This year artists entered dozens and dozens of different pieces making it very difficult for the team of adjudicators to narrow it down to just 34. But it has been done!
From painting, quilting, photography, pottery and glass, the artists and their mediums know no bounds. The Banner Project highlights the diversity in all of the Elk Valley artists. The variety and depth of the artists deserve to be celebrated and the Banner Project accomplishes just that making its tenth year one of its most successful yet.
The completed banners will be displayed at The Arts Station on Thursday, April 25 at 7pm before being hung along Victoria Avenue in downtown Fernie. During this time, the choice to sponsor a banner will be yours for just $100. After being on display for one year on Victoria Avenue then another year lining the highway, the banner is yours! Although, this project is possible thanks to the City of Fernie and the Fernie Arts Council who underpin the project, sponsorship from the community make the project sustainable.
Spectators and interested sponsors alike are welcome to view all of the banners during the Launch but, if something strikes your fancy and you are interested in a banner, you need to act quickly. Banners are a hot commodity and are fantastic attributes to any yard or garden.
After much deliberation, here are the chosen artists that made the cut for 2013!
