Fernie’s living colour

Every year The Arts Station is graced with the works from the Fernie Visual Arts Guild during their annual gallery exhibit. Join them on Thursday, May 31 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the opening reception for the cleverly named exhibit ‘Local Colour.’

‘Local Colour’ represents the wide array of visual arts presented by individuals in the group making this exhibit one of the most diverse of the year.

The generous support of Columbia Basin Trust and Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance subsidized the cost of two art workshops attended by members of the Guild. The weekend workshops were facilitated by local artists, Laura Nelson and Patrick Markle, both of who have had their own shows over the past year. The level of expertise offered by Markle and Nelson significantly adding to the skill and comfort levels of the attendees. So much, in fact, the paintings developed in those workshops will be highlighted at the ‘Local Colour’ show.

The Visual Arts Guild is an informal group of visual artists that meets regularly at the Arts Station in a convivial atmosphere. The group members share opinions, offer critiques, and have a designated time and place to create. New members of all ages and skills are welcome Monday nights at the Arts Station.

Everyone is invited to the Opening Reception of ‘Local Colour’ on May 31, 7 to 9 p.m, and to meet the artists. The show will be open daily and run until June 26 at the Arts Station.
