The Arts Station

The community of Fernie is fortunate to have a plethora of organizations backed by an army of dedicated volunteers, ensuring this community continues to be at the forefront when it comes to arts, culture, history and recreation, and also offering support to ensure nobody is left behind. This coming weekend, two well-known organizations are hosting unique evenings to raise events for their cause, in a fun and entertaining way.

The Fernie and District Arts Council has been awarded a Public Art Grant by the Columbia Basin Trust to add to the public art inventory of Fernie. The project will be to select and install a permanent mural in Fernie.

This collection has evolved from a previous show of abstracts that were predominantly black on white. This time, colour dominates the abstract theme and is the inspiration for this exhibition.

Creativity plus experimentation work to inspire each piece. Many are peppered with a good bit of luck! Knowing when to toss or continue, to add more or not is key. Layering simple design to dramatic effect, with an eye for colour and balance all work together to create each compelling image.
