As long as Michael can remember he’s been drawing. The tools are simple, inexpensive and portable which made it easy to practice through a variety of life’s stages. Drawing is an additive process, meaning you continue to add lines to something until it is a recognizable form. It’s like taking bits of clay and sticking them together lump by lump until your sculpture is finished. Drawing is a very handy, quick way of getting an idea down on paper. It’s familiar and predictable. It allows him to build worlds and ideas in a linear fashion.

From Spalding to Abdou: A history of books from and about Fernie, their authors and inspiration.

The stories that have been written in and about Fernie record our history, our lifestyle and our hopes and dreams. The collection of published works includes a wide range of genres from children's books to researched historical texts, novels, memoirs, poetry, anthologies and guides.

Along with supporting materials from the Museum and community, Stories from Fernie celebrates Fernie's literary heritage.

In the winter of 2018, hoping to help her mom get out of the house more, Sam joined the Fernie Quilt Guild with her, even though she’d never sewn a quilt before. That first workshop taught her many things. A friend had been encouraging her for years and now something finally clicked.

Artists in all disciplines—as well as arts and culture organizations—are invited to apply for funding through the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA), which delivers the Arts and Culture Program on behalf of Columbia Basin Trust.
