Wapiti Music Festival is more than just music. Don’t ya know. I’ll be debuting my new story for the 2017 WonderWalk at Wapiti. It’s not necessarily a headliner, it’s Tokyo Police Club, but The Traveller will be on the grounds in Annex Park just waiting to be read while you mosey around waiting for the next band to play. You might even enjoy it!

An art exhibit showing off Fernie’s great landscapes is opening at Fernie Museum this Thursday, June 15th. I happen to have a painting included. Neat! 7 pm opening!
“How wanderlust and resident artists contribute to our understanding of Fernie’s natural, social, cultural and built landscapes is the subject of Fernie Artography. The exhibit draws on a wealth of artistic material ranging from the historical works of David Paton and Group of Seven artist A.Y. Jackson to works by contemporary visual artists, photographers and video artists practicing in the Elk Valley today.
Wine and cheese reception; cash bar.
Part of the Canada 150 Cultural Series presented by the Fernie Arts Station and the Fernie Museum.”

Call to Artists (by Fernie Museum)
This call to artists is for the upcoming Fernie Artography exhibit at the Fernie Museum, the third of four exhibits being presented as part of the Canada 150 Cultural Series by the Fernie Museum and the Fernie Arts Station.
Fernie Artography explores the human and natural landscapes in and around Fernie that help define the psyche of who we are as a community, including buildings, abandoned buildings, streetscapes, cultural landscapes, human landscapes (your backyard, garden, community parks, paths/trails, etc), and natural landscapes (mountain vistas, rivers, forests, and valleys).

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.
There are no posters for Wapiti this year? Shocking. This is the best I could find.
