Pre-Dumpster Day Painting Night & Dumpster Day!

Out of the box Dumpster Art Project Fernie BC - July 9th, 2017

I’m all set to paint a dumpster this Sunday in the blazing hot sun! But because it’s too much work to get done in a day, us painters will be out painting starting Thursday night and each night leading up to Sunday. Friday night there will even be a DJ (DJ Ray) at Station Square making it a little more enjoyable and if you’re downtown you should come say hi.

Dumpster day is truly the best. It’s got a cool block party vibe to it. There will be activities (decorate your own trucker hat being my favourite), button making, spray painting station, music, live painting and who knows what else. It’s so fun. See you there!

Some extra details from Facebook:

“Come down to Station Square on July 9th to see this year’s winning dumpsters painted by our local artists. Enjoy the sounds of Jay Ray’s music, make some buttons with your children at our Kids Art Corner and see the magic of the dumpster transformation!

This year’s artists are: Peggy Black, Brina Schenk, Joey Kosolofski, Dejana Lukac, Tanya Kindrat, Leanne-Raye Timmons, Drew Hampson and Scott Cable.

The Dumpster Painting will coincide with the first Sunday Socials from Fernie Chamber of Commerce so you can enjoy this arts event from within a pedestrianised Downtown.

Out of the Box is a public art initiative by the City of Fernie and in collaboration with Southeast Disposal. Out of the Box is a project in which 10 commercial trash dumpsters will be transformed into works of public art by regional artists.

Out of the Box is intended as a way for our regional art community to bring beauty and creativity to a seemingly mundane item like a trash dumpster.”

Fernie Piano Concert with Jesse Plessis

The 88 Keys Grand Piano Society of Fernie presents this concert featuring award-winning pianist and composer Jesse Plessis, a native of Sparwood British Columbia.

Jesse is working towards recording and performing all 32 piano sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven in the year 2020 (the 250th birth year of the composer), and this concert will feature the latest addition to his repertoire – the fearsome and tragic “Appassionata” Sonata, written shortly after the composer received news of the incurability of his impending deafness. Also on the program are the Six Piano Pieces Op. 118 by Johannes Brahms – touching musings on love, loss, and life by a composer in his autumnal years. Rounding out the concert are two of Arvo Pärt’s most beloved meditations: “For Alina” and “Mirror in Mirror.”

The concert starts at 7:00 p.m. at Mountainside Community Church, 1622 Tenth Avenue. Tickets are available at the door: $20 adults, $18 seniors (65+) and youth (13 to 18).

Wednesday, June 28 at 7 PM – 9 PM at Mountainside Community Church
