“Art on the Lawn is an opportunity for the public to experience local Fernie art, meet the artists and see them work! A truly unique experience as part of Chautauqua!
The Fernie Visual Arts Guild and individual artists will display their art for viewing and sale. Fernie artists Laura Nelson, Brianne Chisholm and Vanessa Croome can be seen live painting throughout the event.
Fifteen local artists are creating a selection of original work especially for ArtExpo2018 being displayed for your enjoyment and appreciation during Art the Lawn. Everyone is encouraged to wander around the three sided easels to view the varied works of our artists. Participating artists are Amanda Haugrud, Aidan Barnes, Melanie MacVoy, Vanessa Croome, Pru Harshan, Brina Schenk, Brianne Chisholm, Megan Haeusler, Judy Winter, Kathy Stead, Dorothy Sharp, Tyra Collombin, Laura Nelson, Pat Moore, Leanne Stothert.
In addition look for the WonderWalk installment at Art on the Lawn. Fernie artist Brina Schenk has created a new series of original paintings which form a wonderful story for kids and adults alike.
From the event page “With balloons, bubbles, dancing and more, this festival will offer hours of fun for the whole family, plus include inspiring live performances and engaging kid crafts, sprinklers, crafts, and piles of circus inspired fun.
This event is brought to you by the Fernie Heritage Library, and Fernie Mountain Market.”
I had the pleasure of vending back-to-back with Hop & Flop this past weekend at Market Collective. Jenny has a wide range of products from cards and cat colouring books to wrapping paper and hand painted magnets all featuring her brilliant illustrations. You should check her stuff out!
We had a such a fun weekend in Fernie, I forgot to post on Small Town Social! That’s what happens when the sun comes out and the kids want to be outside from morning to night.
This next weekend is going to fly by just as quickly. Griz Days are upon us.
I’m not going to list all the events going on in Fernie next weekend because there is this really informative website called ferniegrizdays.com which will making your planning a breeze.
Highlights for us: Dummy Downhill, Craft Fair and the Parade. We will try and watch the fireworks and maybe participate in the scavenger hunt but the rest will be bonus if we see or participate in them. Time flies when you’re having fun.
I want to stay connected to my town. I want to be part of the community and share all that I find and see. There’s more to me than just where I live, though, I like to write about other things that I experience, such as, reading, music, painting and travelling. Thanks for visiting STS!
