This week Art in the Eve will feature oil painting with Tara Higgins.

Tara Higgins’ bold brush strokes and intuitive sense of colour allow her paintings to become striking impressions of the unrefined, richly textured landscapes that inspire her.

Walking along 2nd Avenue today you would be surprised to learn that 20 years ago the arts scene in Fernie was less than vibrant. Today, a stroll through our historic downtown is a cultural shopping feast. 

Diversity is the name of the game in the Fernie Arts Scene and within a three-block radius you can find an array of makers and artists. Painters, stain glass artists, blacksmiths, photographers, weavers, felters, potters, leatherworkers, jewellers, Fernie represents it all.

To me, art is the second-best thing after time in nature. Through my work, I try to bring the outside in. I don’t have any rules or set methods, I am constantly influenced by our local landscapes and wildlife, and materials that are either found or recycled. It’s even more satisfying to use something that would otherwise end up in a landfill and turn it into something that can be appreciated again.

Supervised drop in for new potters looking to develop their skills. This is self led but a pottery supervisor will be on hand to answer any questions and advise on safety in the studio.

Drop in requires you to have completed basic pottery skill workshops and is an option if you are looking to develop your skills independently. Proof of experience will be required by taking Arts Station Clay Basics or equivalent.
