Death Town Bunnies – Troy Cook
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 24 at 7pm.
Show Continues until Tuesday, March 2
Pulling inspiration from his fascination with rabbits, Troy Cook illustrates what happens if a bunny was to turn into zombies, killers, or robots. The Zombie post-apocalyptic landscape infuses his music as well as his visual art. He is also influenced by pop-surrealist work, and very much likes low-brow art. Although it appears that that stylistically his art has changed dramatically, there in fact remain many of the same dark themes, figures, and several stylistic references from previous works.
These multi-media show is a mix of acrylics and oils with a varied collection of canvas sizes. Come and experience Troy, the painter, and see how he manages to compound his music and art into his recognizable symbiotic fusions.
The third annual celebration of all things vibrant, entertaining and amazing as displayed by Fernie’s finest musicians and artists.

This years line-up begins with the now traditional opening with Keith Liggett reading poetry. Other performers include Jenna Priestner, the lead singer from The Arcade Files, Mighty Joe Young , a veteran blues player, and The Heather McDonald Band, a folkie trio. From Lethbridge comes Sonis McAllister and the Barracuda Orchestre. Bubba Tres ends the night with their laser, confetti, visually-overloaded spectacle.
