Fernie Artography Opens

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.”

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

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).

Blue Toque Take Over

I think I worded that wrong. I’m not taking over The Blue Toque but my illustrations are going to be looking over your shoulder as you eat your awesome breakfast/lunch at The Blue Toque! Get in there and buy one, if you want to continue the over-the-shoulder creeping from home. And you might! They are all originals and all signed by me.
