Spring has sprung and The Arts Station is happy to announce the artists chosen for the eleventh annual Banner Project. Dozens and dozens of pieces by a wide variety of artists were submitted, making it tough for the team of adjudicators to narrow it down to just 34. From painting, quilting, photography, pottery, and glass, there were many mediums to choose from. The depth and variety of the artwork chosen is what makes the Banner Project's eleventh year its most successful yet.

The completed banners will be displayed at The Arts Station on Thursday, April 17 at 7 pm before being hung along Second Avenue in downtown Fernie. Anyone interested can sponsor a banner for $100. After being displayed for one year, the banner will belong to its sponsor.

The Banner Project celebrates the diversity of the Elk Valley's many artists. While it wouldn't be possible without support from the City of Fernie and the Fernie Arts Council, sponsorship from the community is what keeps the project sustainable.
