Annex Suspended Art Opens Thursday, February 23rd At The Arts Station

If only you knew how much happened between the day Michelle and I signed up for this show and now. It’s been quite a crazy ride!! We’d love it if you joined us on Thursday, February 23rd to celebrate the opening of our show and to celebrate us surviving it. If you’re not familiar with Michelle Galway or myself, we’ll be the drunk ones in the corner high-fiving each other whilst crying.

Tristen Perras' Christmas Eve Dinner(a photo from 5 years ago – memories!)

With the holidays upon us, I am finding myself drifting from the computer. I’ll be back when things slow down around here. I hope you all enjoy your holidays! Don’t forget about night skiing at Fernie Alpine Resort, the ice rink at Fernie Courthouse with nets in place, cross-country skiing in Montane, the best hot chocolate in town at BeanPod, collecting your bottles for the Bright Beginnings Preschool Bottle Drive and late night shopping downtown on 2nd ave!

Be safe out there.
