This spot used to be full of thread, cotton fabric and sewing machines…and now you would never recognize the place! It’s called Cryptic Hive. CH has been open for a while and I still haven’t been inside. I thought it was just a tattoo service but there’s also art, I’m learning, and jewelry. I’ll have to check it out.
Once again, I’m amazed at all the art in this small town. There are more art galleries than sport shops in Fernie! Truth.
What I can’t say, I paint
Opening in the Gallery tonight:
January 4th, 7pm
“Some of the paintings focus on our voyeuristic urge, to watch, to judge without thinking for ourselves and a few others are more positive like being part of a supportive structure, being right in the middle of that drastic change we want to see.”Join Pru and ourselves at the opening this Thursday at 7pm to preview this thought-provoking exhibition.
From The Arts Station:
This December, we want to fill our gallery with beautiful and diverse wreaths, designed and made by local artists.
To submit a design, please send us a sketch of your planned wreath together with the application form, downloadable below. Submissions should emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or brought to the Arts Station.
The deadline for entries is October 23rd.
Chosen artists will be contacted on October 30th and will have until Tuesday 28th November to create their design.
The show will then open on November 30th @ 7pm.
Submissions will be adjudicated by the Gallery Committee. Wreath designs will be selected by their originality, artistic merit and ability to be achieved.
The Arts Station will provide wreaths to decorate, or you can use your own wreath structure.
Wreaths can be made from any materials, but must be no bigger than 60 cms x 60 cms, or 2 ft x 2 ft.
Local businesses and community groups are also very welcome to submit.
The wreaths will be sold via silent auction throughout December and the proceeds will contribute to the Arts Station Youth Bursary.
There will also be a People’s Choice award for the favourite wreath. Prize to be announced.

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.
Spa 901 is hosting a gallery show called Driven To Abstraction which showcases Tara Higgins‘ latest collection. Saturday, November 7th between 7 and 9 pm.
