Art and Entertainment
Intentions are an interesting concept when it comes to artistry. Being an artist, from Kira’s perspective and experience, is about freedom of expression throughout the process and even in the final result. She’s come to learn that just because she starts with an idea or inspiration, it does not mean that her final product will imitate that.
I recently had a friend contact me about a disturbing email they’d received. The writer of the email purported to have compromised my friend’s account. That they had access to their computer, their email, and their webcam.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood focuses on the trials and tribulations of fictional actor Rick Dalton and his stunt man Cliff Booth, both of whom, after spending years performing in a successful western-themed television show called Bounty Law, have fallen on hard times.
Life is full of contradictions: as an artist, I rely on people to fill their homes with things of beauty to make a living. At some point, as we collectively trend towards smaller homes and fewer things, art consumers will inevitably run out of space for art.
Every story begins with colour. The soft rose of dawn. Stirrings in the deep purple-blue twilight. The bleak beige-grey of a late winter day…

As I meditate on what it means to begin again, I am doing just that: beginning again. I will learn to trust my body and the fortitude of my mind to rise and be stronger. I am broken but will heal.
Just because it is easy to quantify does not make growth an accurate metric for the well-being of a business. So many of us have moved to Fernie for lifestyle reasons, shouldn’t that be part of the equation?
As introduced in the June edition, the Built Heritage Grants, funded by Columbia Basin Trust and administered by Heritage BC, are helping to restore some of Fernie’s most significant and historic buildings. One of these is Knox United Church.
My first attempt at chainsaw carving did not turn out like I thought it would. It was absolutely terrible. It was a human face and it was really bad. I did however know where my mistakes were.
September will be a very practical month and getting organised after summer is the focus.
The sunny weather might linger well into September but summer fun changes with the start of the school calendar. It is a perfect time to hit the pause button and find time to complete an art project.
The Fernie & District Arts Council are delighted to share with you the selected artist for the Fernie Mural Project; Michael Hepher with his piece, "All Kinds of Beauty".
