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!

Cryptic Hive – Tattoo and Art Gallery – Downtown Fernie

Cryptic Hive - Tattoo and Art in Fernie BC - Downtown

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.

An Independent Drawing Club

Independent Drawing Club - Fernie BC

I just wanted to share this great little group that has recently started up. I’m calling it the independent drawing club because it’s just a group of people who want to get together and draw/paint.

It all started after Anna Weston decided to leave Fernie, which meant our Dynamic Life Drawing class was coming to an end. A few of the life drawing students organized these Thursday (every other week) drawing nights at The Arts Station. There have only been two, so far, and each night has featured a new technique or lesson but you are also free to come and draw or paint or do whatever it is that you do. Some times it’s nice just to be around other people who love to create.

It’s free, as long as you have a membership to The Arts Station. Everyone is welcome! If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll get you more details.
