Cirque Du Soleil – Corteo
Fernie Chautauqua kicks off today and goes until Sunday, September 16th. The schedule is so long and vast, you gotta get to their website www.ferniechautauqua.com to see it all. If you’re coming for the weekend, Fernie’s RV Resort has some yurts available. Special!
From facebook event page:
“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.
