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.

Little Mountain Art Studio Partnership

There’s something about people coming together that warms my heart. Michelle has just announced Little Mountain Art Studio is teaming up with Jodie Parker. Two incredible women making art with kids this summer. I love it.

The Beginning Of Annex Suspended

I don’t like sitting still for too long. If I sit still for a long period of time I come up with ideas like Annex Suspended. Not wanting to do this one alone, I approached my friend Michelle Galway about making mobiles together and she joined me without much arm twisting.

Annex Suspended launched by art show, obviously. That’s the way most businesses begin. Right? The art show sold a few pieces and now we’re going to try and make a go of it online.

We’re so new, we’re still trying to figure out who exactly we are. So if you’re interested in observing our journey of discovery, you can follow us any of the follow ways:

So, I guess sitting still for a long period of time isn’t so bad.
