Liza Gareau Tosh has been working as an artist for over 25 years. Originally from Saskatchewan, Liza first discovered Fernie in the late 1990s, has lived here transiently since 2004, and has taken up permanent residence since 2012. A great destination for raising her boys and teaching, Fernie continues to push her own boundaries in making art for which she is grateful. Liza, who dabbles in both studio work and plein air, gravitates to acrylic and watercolour through painting and drawing. Her work is largely representational but never predictable.

Joey Kosolofski’s first solo show, entitled “Searching for a ground”, includes a collection of works from the past four years of his mountain living. Joey creates a balance between his past love of abstract and urban art, with a developing style that incorporates the natural beauty of vibrant mountain landscapes and scenery. This show features some of his previous abstract works along with his recent thought-provoking interpretation of some iconic views from the valley.
