Fernie Banner Project Call For Entry

2015 Fernie Banner Project Launch Day

“Banner Project 2018

For over the past decade, Elk Valley artists have added their own air to Fernie’s streets offering works of art for the 39 banners that line Highway 3 and downtown. Now, in its 14th year, we are calling out to the artists that call the Elk Valley home to once again to contribute to Fernie’s annual Banner Project. We are thrilled to again highlight various artistic mediums from artists of all ages!

What are the adjudicators looking for? Bold colours, striking imagery that stands out from a distance, variation in themes and artistic disciplines and it has to be eyecatching to the street-level observer. What kind of mediums will be accepted? Submissions of paintings, quilts, stained glass, sculpture, pottery and photography are welcome.”

For more information, check out The Arts Station’s website.

Submissions are due Tuesday, April 3rd at 2pm, so, you have time to get organized!

Fernie On Instagram : Birds

Last week I went birding with Nature Bob! I’d been hearing about this “famous” nature/birding guy since arriving in Fernie, but I never had the chance to meet him. Our paths finally crossed and he showed me some great feeders around town. The great part is that he knows *everyone* so rather than awkwardly taking photos over people’s fences, I was invited right in to get as close as I wanted. 🙌🙌 Thank you Nature Bob! Here is a Mountain Chickadee from our outing. _________________________________________ #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored  #planetbirds #thebirdingsquad #birds_illife #sassy_birds #birds_captures #birdfreaks #nature_worldwide_birds  #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #nature_sultans  #exclusive_wildlife #naturesbestphotomagazine  #eye_for_earth #IGS_CAN #NikonCA #sharecangeo #ferniestoke #kootrocks #fernie #mountainchickadee

Our Trip To Costa Rica

Just wanted to share a few pictures from our trip to Costa Rica this September. It was Costa Rica’s rainy season so we (four families from Fernie) were all prepared for mosquitoes, rain, dengue fever, sting rays, tantrums and sun burns but it ended up being much easier than I expected. We did get bit by mosquitoes but only a little. Only one of us got stung by a sting ray. Hardly any tantrums erupted and only a few noses pealed. The travel was tedious, no doubt, it took over 24 hours to get there and over 30 hours to return, but we did it and survived!

We surfed, played in the cool pool, hunted lizards, admired the massive butterflies, biked  around town, played on the beach, collected shells and ate some delicious food. It was just what I needed.
