Culture

Sometimes you don't know what you need inside your soul. That is, until you're yelling out lyrics to Robyn's Show Me Love circa 1997 while wine-drunk, and on your way to a pool overlooking a vineyard.

Throughout the early 20th Century the design of neighbourhoods across North America were influenced by plan books published by firms based in cities such as Winnipeg, Seattle and Chicago, while firms such as Eaton’s, Sears, and Aladdin sold plans and delivered the required lumber to your building lot ready for assembly, while others such as the Vancouver-based BC Mills Ltd delivered prefabricated homes.

Join fine artist Michael Hepher for an introduction to the art of plein air painting, the style of painting directly from and in nature. 

Michael Hepher is a blacksmith, musician, printmaker, and has recently returned to his previous passion of painting landscapes. His work is reminiscent of the Group of Seven and he often travels with a pochade box to transport his studies, as many of the Group of Seven artists did.

Many of us were first exposed to Troy Cook through his multiple artistic murals found throughout the town of Fernie. They were hard to miss, unlike anything else you had ever seen. So alive, colourful and captivating.

Explore artists' studios, museums, art galleries and heritage sites during this free, self-guided event. Travel to studios and archives that aren't normally open, see demonstrations, new exhibitions and collections or meet people behind the scenes. To participate in the tour, simply grab a map, your Culture Tour Directory and go!
