From facebook event page:
“Art on the Lawn is an opportunity for the public to experience local Fernie art, meet the artists and see them work! A truly unique experience as part of Chautauqua!
The Fernie Visual Arts Guild and individual artists will display their art for viewing and sale. Fernie artists Laura Nelson, Brianne Chisholm and Vanessa Croome can be seen live painting throughout the event.
Fifteen local artists are creating a selection of original work especially for ArtExpo2018 being displayed for your enjoyment and appreciation during Art the Lawn. Everyone is encouraged to wander around the three sided easels to view the varied works of our artists. Participating artists are Amanda Haugrud, Aidan Barnes, Melanie MacVoy, Vanessa Croome, Pru Harshan, Brina Schenk, Brianne Chisholm, Megan Haeusler, Judy Winter, Kathy Stead, Dorothy Sharp, Tyra Collombin, Laura Nelson, Pat Moore, Leanne Stothert.
In addition look for the WonderWalk installment at Art on the Lawn. Fernie artist Brina Schenk has created a new series of original paintings which form a wonderful story for kids and adults alike.

The lucky winner of the most votes gets $200! I could use that money to buy loads of groceries that would last about 3 days in this household.
Place your vote here and send that person home from Wapiti Music Festival (where the original artwork will be on display) with a couple bags of groceries!
Last year Wapiti launch it’s first Art Expo, a display of about 20 original paintings, and they’re doing it again this year! I am participating in the Art Expo, as well as another Wonder Walk (last year I did Shy Girl) called The Traveller. Next I’ll be on stage painting live. Kidding. I kid. Ew.
Art Expo 2016 was widely praised and appreciated and that’s awesome. I’m looking forward to seeing all the new work in Annex Park!
