The Arts Station is a cool place to be and to find people who share a love of creative expression. Maybe you have a little something you want to share with others? Maybe you want to introduce a special project with the rest of us? I’ve often thought about doing a mini workshop but it also terrifies me…so I probably won’t just yet. But you should!
Michelle and I were artists in the Festival of Lights this past weekend and, although the work was hard, it was worth it. To be part of community projects is so important to me and to push us to work in a different way (glowing 3D objects!) gets the brain working double-time. Thank goodness Michelle doesn’t mind getting involved in these projects with me.
The whole event was incredibly fun. Parading around downtown with our families, dancing in a crowd, looking at the other brilliant art installations, drinking hot chocolate and watching fireworks at the end. A great event for Fernie!

“David P. Smith in Concert
November 17th, 8pm
Victoria, BC songwriter David P. Smith has been writing, performing, and recording since 1995. He is essentially a storyteller, his narratives visceral, sometimes hilarious, peering into darkness, stumbling into surreality, lurching back into the everyday, and occupying that honest spot where good C&W dwells. Musically and sonically he draws on everything from the raw emotion of hard-core country and rhythm and blues, to noise, to folk, to the forms dictated or suggested or discovered on the accordion or piano.” Get your tickets here: Eventbrite
Have a listen:
A couple of IFF’s films coming up this winter, Kayak to Klemtu and The Wife. Showing at Vogue Theatre in Fernie. We’re so lucky to have festivals such as this in our small town.
