Culture

Alexandra is a multi-media artist focused on portraying the essence of Fernie’s natural spaces. She loves to depict movement and states of flux. The seasonal changes in Fernie provide a constant inspiration with every week more beautiful than the last, in its own unique way.

We can either ignore the world around us, or we can find ways to process and assimilate the influx in ways that allow us to keep moving forward. Luckily there is a group of people who are committed to helping us with the task: the artists.

Open Studio Time has moved online!

For all your virtual creative connection needs, we are hosting open studio via zoom on Wednesday nights from 7-9pm.

As part of #soloartstreak, this is a great time for you to connect with other creatives, show what you've been working on, chat with each other, or just sit in silence while you draw/paint/knit/underwater basket weave!

As male in a small-town arts community, I’m an unlikely minority. At any given artists’ gathering I’m often one of few men, and I’m invariably surrounded by creative, talented, competent, hard-working, and knowledgeable women. 

Drawing inspiration from the architecture and nature of her surroundings to create paintings that show the ever-evolving history and unique character of her adopted home, this small town nestled in the Rocky Mountains.

A few years ago I borrowed a friend’s car for a road trip. As I wound my way up the Kootenay Pass, the only music available was a stack of unmarked, burned CDs jammed between the seats. As I cycled through those discs each new track was an adventure.

‘Stories from the Shadows’ is a compilation of photos taken during my time working at The Free Press, from 2016 to 2019.

The title of the gallery represents a characteristic that all chosen subjects share – humility. Inspired by them, I brought their stories out of the shadows and in turn, allowed others the chance to be inspired as well.

These people are humble folk, and do not live to boast about their accomplishments. For this I respect them greatly.
