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.”

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).
